17th of April 2016 Blog update

As I write this weeks vlog/blog update while enjoying my morning coffee, I do feel the spring is in the air 🙂 Oh boy it did take it’s time this year… It’s been busy and a productive week for me, hope your week has been a good one as well. I somehow feel like I got to create a lot this week, and those of you who know me, know is my passion 🙂

This week did hold a few lessons as well, so lets dig in to them first:

  1. The time is never perfect, so you should never wait for it. Act today, not some day in the future. What you don’t do today, more than likely never gets done.
  2. Some interesting statistics was brought to my attention. As you know I have been working hard on my YouTube channel, but I must admit I was surprised to hear that YouTube is the most popular way for people to consume music these days. If your music is not on YouTube, it does not exist!
  3. Don’t just do a job, but over over deliver where ever you can.

This weeks song talks about taking responsibility for your own words. Read all about it in the blog post, and grab your self a download of the song from my Bandcamp page, the link is in the blog post as well:
