Was I better now than I was yesterday?
Yes, before I simply left everything to tomorrow or let myself stop doing something because things got too hectic for me to manage everything. What I have learned throughout the semester is that you cannot allow yourself to stop doing something. Get in a habit of doing something everyday, even if it’s just for 5 minutes and continue to do it everyday, and above all do not allow yourself to stop just because you feel stressed on time. If you stop one day, then soon your stop the day after, and pretty soon you’ll stop doing it altogether. I’ve allowed this to happen to many times. I may not know much more about music theory or composition now than I did in August, but I at least know that in order to truly learn these subjects and take my knowledge to the next level I have to practice at it every day. Now that I have learned that I can start on the road to knowledge of Music Theory and Composition, and although I may have to take baby steps to get where I want to be, baby steps are much better than not moving at all.
