Hey everyone, I've decided to start a weekly blog. It will serve many purposes. I'll be blogging about any and every subject that is going on with me , as well as interesting issues going on in the world and my opinion on books that I read. Share them with your friends and family if you feel the need. Thanks in advance!
So I just started reading this book by Steven Covey. It seem to be a very popular book, but it's new to me. It's called "The 7 Habits of Highly effective people"
So far, it's extremely interesting and mind opening. Before getting into the "7 habits", Covey talks about changing your paradigm. Your paradigm is the way you see things. Your opinion based on previous experience and upbringing. Covey makes a point, that we always want change but won't put in the proper work to make complete change. We want that "quick fix". In order to change your situation, you must change your paradigm. For example, If you're a business owner or even just a manager, and are having problems with employees giving their best effort for the company , instead of doing the bare minimum for a pay check. You must show them the importance of their role, rather than give them a zero tolerance, "we don't need you, because we'll just hire someone else" speech. Changing your paradigm is seeing the good in your current situation. If your car has a horrible paint job, just remember, it get's you where you need to go. Let's embrace the positive y'all. You'll feel much better! Until then, I look forward to MANY more blogs on this book. Thanks for taking the time to read!
As an instrumental musician,i find it a bit more complicated than others to build my fan base. People today don't listen to instrumental music as much as the past because it doesn't have lyrics. Personally, I don't sing or do anything vocal and don't plan to. So what can I do to gain the interest of typical "pop music" listeners?
