As I've grown acclimated to the rather dreary 9-to-5 world, I have been thinking about this a lot lately. What does it really take to do music for a living? How do most people get there? Obviously, there's more to it than beefing up your follower count on soundcloud (contrary to what those spambots suggest). If you do music for a living in any capacity, how did you get there? (I'm assuming that ceasing thoughts about this sort of thing and just working on the damn music has to do with it). If not, what keeps you going?
What gets you pumped up to make some music? Do you have any pre-production rituals? Do you go for a jog? Meditate? Drink coffee or energy drinks? Smoke weed? Trip on LSD or Mushrooms? Think about the future or past? How do you stay focused and not get distracted? How do you keep up your workflow? I'm asking all of this because a lot of times I get drained after only 30 minutes of working. I come up with a what I think is a good idea and then don't want to screw it up or just end up jamming with it and getting stuck on moving forward. Am I just lazy? What inspires and motivates you?
