"You've got to come hear this..."

I was thinking and dreaming today about what it would be like to have a band at a certain place where I could call my friends and supervisors to invite them to my rehearsal and say, "You've got to come hear this..." because the band is sounding and performing at such a high level. I've not had that so far in my career, but of course would love to experience that and I think I can have that at my current school in the coming years. I would love to have comments from anyone of you that has experienced that with a group.

But then the other side of me makes me ask, "Is it truly about that?" "Is that a worthy goal?" "Am I looking at it wrong?". (I so quickly doubt myself so much.) I wonder if I am setting myself up for failure or if I can hang on to those dreams until I achieve them.

I am excited about the potential that I have coming in the next year. It really challenges me to be even better to make sure each day is productive. Maybe that's why I'm thinking about this even while on summer vacation? Go figure...

  1. I'm not great at this "Goal" thing, but it seems to me the more people that are involved in it the harder it is to achieve, that is it is based on things outside your self.
    Maybe a better goal is seeing when you have helped a group to so focus, to so 'get it', that they are on the same page giving it the best they have.
    That sounds tenuous, too however.
    Its not that the Goal is wrong, I think it would be a wonderful side benefit.
    That's not to say it shouldn't be a goal. That's up to you, and if you achieve it, it will be incredibly satisfying I would imagine.
