#58: Inspiration - Hunt, Don't Wait to be Struck by Lightning
2 days ago
This podcast was inspired by a student question. He asked, "How do I get inspired to make music?" It's a great question, but I think it contains some underlying beliefs that need to be addressed. In this episode, I encourage you to hunt for inspiration. To make yourself inspired. If you wait for inspiration, you'll never get anything done.

This is exactly what I needed!
I have been stuck on a lot of the issues Brian tackles in this podcast and listening to the episodes has helped me tremendously. If nothing else, it's helpful just to know another person encounters the same mental strife when it comes to being creative AND productive.

So happy to have found this unique series.
Thanks to this guy I'm excited about learning new things with Ableton and I'm making music instead of worrying about it somehow not working properly. He also interviews cool people that are actively pursuing their visions.
