100 DAYS LEFT OF 2019...
September 22nd is the 265th day of the year, which means there are officially 100 days left of 2019. I think we can all agree that 2019 has completely and utterly flown by, but there is still so much time to tick things of that ‘2019 Goals’ list.
Summer is done, and we’re looking ahead to the rest of the year and it’s time to pull all of those loose ties together. It can sometimes feel like the music industry goes a bit quiet once the festival season is over, but this is the time where the real hard work starts.
With 100 days to go, you need to work out exactly what you want to achieve before the end of the year, and how you’re going to make that happen. If you’re already looking ahead to plans for 2020, get all the hard work out of the way now, to save you time when we hit the new decade.
Now is the best time to grab a cuppa and sit down and update your assets. If you’ve had a busy Summer period with lots of live shows, maybe you’ve released those Summer hits, or you took some sweet new press shots with the sunset, open up your EPK and get them in! Your EPK should be updated regularly anyway to keep it current, but post-Summer is the perfect time to give it a freshen up.
If you started the year with goals and you haven’t quite hit them yet, don’t get yourself down about it, 2019 is definitely not over yet, and 100 days is a lot of time to work towards a goal. Remember, there are a lot of goals that are impossible to put time frames on, and if you can’t tick them off this year, it doesn’t suggest anything about your capabilities or strength, it just gives you every reason to make 2020 a big year for you and your project.
So with 100 days to go, let’s get 2019 done with the right attitude and determination we had on day 1.
