Life is Short

Life is short. As short as we make it.

“And then one day you find ten years have gone behind you, no one you when you run, you missed the starting gun.” –Pink Floyd

We’re given enough time in the average life span to accomplish much. Think of the many musicians that have left us too early and yet managed to produce a veritable lifetime of material in such a short period of time. Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kurt Cobain… it’s a long list. These musicians and many others have created music that has inspired millions.

If you feel you have a passion, a vision, a drive – pursue it. Don’t compromise. Find similar minded musicians that share your vision so you can work toward your goal or go it alone. Playing music that doesn’t inspire or lead you toward achieving your goal is just as time consuming and draining as playing music you love. You could spend your most productive and healthy years helping someone else achieve their vision instead of putting energy and focus toward yours.

While our lives are long, we only have a limited amount of time. Make as much of it your time. Follow your dreams where ever they may lead you.
