The First Reason You Don’t Get What You Want

Have you ever made a list of the things that you want to do in life?  Even a small one – maybe the places you’d want to vacation, or the gear you want, or the things you want to learn.  What stops you from moving forward?

Money, and time – right?  If you had more money you’d take a sweet vacation, or buy a fancy preamp, or a super nice car.  Plus you’ve been told that it takes 10,000 hours to master anything you want to learn, and who has that kind of time?!

But that’s actually not right.  That’s not why you don’t go do the things you really want to do.

The primary reason – is you don’t know where, or how, to start.  Or to put it a different way, you don’t know what to focus on.

If you had a clear cut path to make more money and work less, and you understood that, you’d take it.

If you had a clear cut path to learn a new skill, and were given a reasonable amount of time to complete your goal – you’d likely jump on it, even if not immediately.

Instead we live in a world of information overload.  With articles that promise to teach you the 5 Best Ways to Get Rich This Year or How to lose fat, and still eat all the pizza you want!  Advice that, on one hand, sounds great – but a week in you can’t keep up the work.  Then it seems like failure, and you hunt for a new place to start – the one that sticks this time.

I’ve gone through this a bunch.  I wanted to learn audio programming, how to speak multiple foreign languages, how to put on muscle and work out, how to write books, etc.  I also never wanted to pay, because I never felt I had the money.  I also didn’t have time, because I’m always busy and tired.

But through trial and error, I’ve recognized that one of the keys is this – simply knowing where to start.

So for those of you who want to learn programming, and learn how to do it with audio – I mean making plugins, playing with DSP, custom-coding actions and extensions in Reaper/Wwise/FMOD/Unreal/Unity, making sounds and music in Pure Data or Max/MSP, coding your own synthesizer, or just making your own WinAMP – I’m working on download to give you the starting point.

So for you to succeed, that’s one barrier gone.  You just have to choose what sounds cool to you today, click a link, and start.  You can get it on August 18th (that’s this Friday), just sign up below and I’ll email it directly to you.
