When everything you thought you wanted
And all the plans that you made
Don’t seem to make sense anymore
Don’t really resonate in your soul anymore
Don’t fundamentally get you excited anymore
It’s good to ask yourself….
What is pushing me, and what is pulling me?
Sometimes you lose your inspiration for a while for the thing you love doing
I thought that I was just temporarily not feeling it
Or suffering from some hardcore “resistance” as Steven Pressfield calls it
Not wanting to do the real work of becoming a better composer/producer
But it seems that that’s not really been the real issue
It seems to have been a deeper-seated misalignment
So I’ve been asking myself…
Musically, what is pushing me and what is pulling me?
