    PP 012 - Goal Setting

    PP 012 - Goal Setting

    Happy 2022!
    A New Year always brings new challenges and goals. We’re constantly fed information online about goal setting and having your ‘best’ year. Sometimes that can feel like what you set yourself either isn’t enough or you end up setting your expectations way to high, which inevitably leads to disappointment and frustration.
    This episode I talk about my experience with setting goals and what I feel are good methods to achieving fulfilling but achievable goals. It’s a skill in itself and one that needs practicing to develop.

Inspiring and Encouraging

Great stories from working composers that have really inspired me to dive deeper into composition! I’ve also enjoyed exploring everyone’s catalogues after listening.

Binge worthy!

For anyone wanting to learn from veteran and new library composers, this is the podcast for you. Guy Jones does a fantastic job asking all the questions I know that I wanted to ask 😉
