Remember, it takes time to get a return, but once the returns start coming, each new investment is more fun, because you’re getting a return from all of your previous investments, even as you’re making a new one! Take the time to enjoy these returns every practice session. Play something that you can play well. Get into the feel of your music, have some fun and revel in your accomplishments. With time, you will discover that the cycle of work/fun has changed to a cycle of fun work/fun!
