And other stuff

Being realistic

For the vast majority of us, producing songs (writing, composing, recording) is a hobby. Time consuming, sometimes expensive, sometimes frustrating but always hugely rewarding on a personal level. Anyone doing it to make money is already a star, or doomed to disappointment.

And this is true of most artistic endeavours.

    I agree that it’s important to be realistic; whether one’s hobby is golfing, swimming, singing, composing, or whatever, the chances of winning a PGA trophy, an Olympic gold medal, a Grammy, etc. are pretty slim. If we pin our hopes on becoming “rich and famous” through our hobbies, most of us—as you say—will be doomed to disappointment. And that’s not being negative or pessimistic. It’s being *realistic*!
