Practice Magic (Jazz Organ Project 53/250)

It takes a ton of practice to become a great magician. Great magicians often spend years in seclusion practicing magic tricks in order to get them perfect. It’s one of those careers that necessarily has to be about the love of the craft.

Music is similar to magic. Great musicians make performing look so easy that it might be hard to imagine how hard they had to work. But it’s not unusual to find a musician who started playing at age 2, and spent all of their high school and college years locked away in a practice room for many hours a day.

Whatever you are working on, no matter how small, obsess over it and perfect it as if you were mastering a difficult card trick. Don’t settle for anything less than perfection.
