Pretty much anything you do in the music business is for the future. What you record today, will not be out in some cases until months from now. The bookings you do today are usually for shows anything up to a year from now. If a manager will take you onboard, it will take some time before you will see results.
So remember, everything you do, you do for the future. Think and plan long-term. Take actions today that will affect something you do six months from now. This is something you should also remember when you are networking, or even talking to potential fans. Don’t always try to go for the kill, let the relationship grow first. Take your time, if you are too pushy you will only scare people away.
So the shows you are playing right now, or the album you are promoting, are results of your past. You release a video today and you are upset as it is not getting loads of views straight away. Those views will grow over time. Be patient. You can’t change the past, but you can learn from it and work for a better future.
