We found this great article that sounds suspiciously self-helpy, but it has so much wisdom indeed. Respect Chris Robley. Here’s a brief summary to "5 music career lessons I learned from gardening."
Sometimes, the most valuable lessons in life come from apparently mundane, day-to-day tasks. The little things in life could actually serve us as an inspiration to pursue greater things, such as a music career.
Good quality soil
Like in gardening, it all needs to start from good quality soil: this is the only way for something to truly grow and develop into something great.
Also like gardening, music requires daily maintenance: you need to keep watering, nurturing, looking for the best sunlight and take care of every little stem.
Have faith and go with the flow
It is also important to understand, in music and gardening, that not everything will lead to a blossom, in spite of your most dedicated efforts. Sometimes, plants just die: it is important to accept that and find the strength to start again without becoming discouraged if your effort led to nothing. Trial and error is the best way to learn, in music as well as in gardening and in life.
