Please read the rest of this article and see how effective it is, and don’t pounder much on the part you don’t understand too.
This will be mostly advice about the approach I would take if I was starting music as a 20k generation or maybe you are old and you are just starting out. Please I may need to disclaimer ,be advised don’t stick with one method of doing things reinvent yourself and try to live 1000 lives while you are one person. Here is the number of the things I have done through my life time.
I started by being a little boy ,mama’s boy like most of us then as I grew losing parents I started music and at school I wasn’t bad either ,within music I became a producer ,event organizer ,artist and a brand who has his own clothing line. I moved to township real estate and owns two rental complex now I’m into blogs and podcast and also looking towards YouTube as well so you can call that’s media company.
But all this is not enough at home I’m a financial manager if you want your money to be secured and trustworthy I’m your man ,I won’t double it or anything like that’s but you can achieve your financial goals if I can manage your finances just saying I don’t need any clients I assist at home.
Key Books have all the 1000s lives I need because I become part of what’s ever I’m reading at that’s time and I can tell you how Hendry ford lived his life like I was there and I know and apply lot of things that’s other people are ignorant at. So I became a passionate reader and personal development and developed the skill of self motivation and it’s helped me keep going when times are tough.
You and I need to learn to use internet to influence other people to think alike and build that’s trust ,than the base will be broad and in life you will have brothers and sisters that’s will die for you because of valuable you have become to them.
I avoided point form today, so I can touch different subject that’s I get limited to when I focus on one subject. You may be lazy to read books ,listen to audio books or visit this blog everyday and see what’s you get ,the most convenient social media to me is face book Like our page ULwaz No Makhula and you won’t miss doze of inspiration and like Spliff entertainment that’s where we portray our lives into certain extent.
By this I suggest you follow people who are seeking the juice of life and not those who follow the crowd and shinny movements. The reason I’m on blogging is because I’ve been into music for a long period of time now I want new challenge and build audience here who we can influence one another positively.
I won’t repeat things I have mentioned in my other blogs topics ,look for a topic here on self control or on discipline or lessons in life just keep going I also talk about awareness in life and ,why you should consider relocating in your current place.
To big dreamers like me, they say dreams come true to those who work while their dreaming ,I’m not a fan of quotes because they lose context most of the time but I got this one when I was doing metric which Mr. Nelson Mandela put it well Metric is a university entry examination so basically that’s what’s you need metric for but other companies has make it a prerequisite as well like it has anything to do with the repetitive jobs they give people.
Since schools are government regulated most of them and few private we all end up having to get this metric certificate and wanting to take government jobs that’s most doesn’t need. In closing evaluate the things I talked about today and realize the things that’s seem normal may not be really necessary you just have to find a way to distinguish yourself from the rest and live your own way.
The most important thing after breathing is money then time so try to value both this things and you will have trouble free life ,use time the best effective way you can and enjoy the results and pay attention to money usage and have a balance don’t value money too much till you miss the point and spend your life saving or value time so much that’s you hire a person to change you a globe at night we don’t encourage spending time on things that’s seems unimportant and repetitive as part of life ,when you get to the position delegate all that’s and really lesser focus on your life and business and figuring things out.
Thanks for spending time with us, be the part of our family and follow our blog and comment and challenge our theories.
We go through life and even die without really figuring certain things about our existence andwhat’s happens around us. So today we going to lookdeep and not solving these puzzles but thinking about them might put you at ease that’s we sometimes struggle with same things and fates. Without further due let get down to it.
What’s a dream really represent
Apart from people analyzing your dreams the main question is how they get to your mind in the 1st place. There is no scientist or physiologist who has answered this questions and even people doing brain studies lacks meaningful understanding of dreams. Average people says it’s the events from your past life and we could argue that’s as well that’s if we had past its really wiped in our brains and DNA because we have to see it on our sleep where we cannot make sense of it.
And the fact that’s we have past life seems like Jesus story no offence but since Jesus is from haven is the only person who can be regarded having second life here on earth but we not going to stick to that’s story because its favor one religion. So enlighten me in the comment section below if you have a better understanding of dreams.
Lastly there is a subconscious perspective of this, like saying dreams are your deep thoughts manifesting or maybe it’s a Dejavu but even Dejavu itself is counterintuitive because we can’t trust it either cause people around you during it don’t have a same resemblance of that’s moment, to them it’s a new scene and they cannot back your theory that’s maybe we were once here in an unknown past.
Where exactly do we go when we die?
There is a scientific explanation that’s seems concrete in its explanation ,according to science we are just bodies and mind once we die the body rots and get eaten by worms while the mind switches off for good ,I have never heard the science society talking much about the spirit and soul.
And there is religious explanation which is heaven and hell apart from your body dying, they believe one day you will wake up and resume to life especially if you attend church. In the mean time while you dead you will be waiting in heaven or hell or you will be staying with your ancestors meaning your family that’s is already dead ,once you die you going to join them as well.
But earth been around for many centuries and decades there are man-made fictions that’s has became a fact by now and other has become more of business that’s the reasons behind its existence. Our conclusion come down to we still don’t know where we are going when we die and the ghost part is worse no one really come back from dearth unless they weren’t dead in the 1st place but we open to your comments and your point of view.
Why feeling are more powerful than rational thinking
The way human being is made or born its animal like and we can all agree to that’s but we are given more senses than other species like reasoning ,anticipation ,feelings that’s we can explain others that’s we can’t . We know from a certain study that’s a person has 26 emotions that’s include crying ,laughing ,sadness ,shy ,humor ,anger ,envy ,scared and so on. But we not are going to look at all of this we going to look at those that’s affect us the most Gut feeling instead of Logical thinking.
They both work in different circumstances but the problem once you follow the feeling while knowing the facts you taking a risk you going to regret because you saw. In the other hand you can choose gut feeling and trust and most relationships are built on those feelings but once you get betrayed because you didn’t want to admit that’s your girlfriend or a boyfriend was a loose cannon ,you will beat yourself to it as well. So why from all the choices we have to make in life we also have to deal with this two as well?
Why we cannot predict the future
This is not question of having money, tools and everything in life. You can put a kid in the best school in the world the odds of that’s kids success are high but it doesn’t mean that’s will happen precisely the way you pictured it. Its well known that’s after so much civilizations we are still lacking great estimates but due to growing to studies like statistics and so on ,there has been censuses around the world of babies and insurances that’s maybe needed to solve the upcoming boom of population and dearth rate ,but still our numbers cannot be accurate.
But the progress being made is powerful one, then going back to families and individuals we cannot predicts our partner’s next mood swing so we can act accordingly and that’s makes commitment really hard. If you knew where the next accident is going to take place you will make sure to not be there when that’s happens. In business the markets always changes and leaders needs to be ahead and constantly read to grow and adapt to change and fail to do that’s then your business suffers.
I liked what’s Mr. Bill Gates realized when answering some of the interview , he said ,he doesn’t see Microsoft company as a dynasty meaning his grand grand children may not be able to eat the directs fruits of that’s company. It’s a technology company and technology evolves very fast he knows if he can bet on it’s with all he’s eggs he may lose, he was very successful in the space but it’s not something like healthcare of leading pharmaceutical company that’s has antibiotics and biotic that’s people will always need is just programs that’s engineers has already replicated. Bill Gate type of future can be predicted unless if the company branches to the sectors of essentials like food shelter and transport.
Why we can never be content
Middle class person may act like he has made it in life because of cars, houses and money and satisfied and degrees but deep down he wishes for more. Monogamy has became a norm but we all know that’s not how evolution made us, we are now limit and stop ourselves from having multiple partners and claim to have a real feelings for one person , end up calling the other chemistry just a lust.
The mistresses are now more of a norm while other man has learnt self deprivation and call it self control. The truth is we are never content in anything, I saw a guy release a song while he was still having a great time with other recent release, and he was surprised seeing people not liking the new song and still entertain the old one his ego told him he was hot while that’s wasn’t the case it was just a moment he should’ve enjoyed it while its last and not interrupt it with another song.
Rich dudes keep the good habits that’s lead them to the lifestyle they have now claiming they enjoy what’s they do. I won’t argue with that’s but no matter how hard you work and push you are trying to be more than what’s you are today and I hope this is the only mystery I wish not to seize. In closing the contentment people fake lead to all sort of diseases namely obesity and depression because now you have became static in a certain part of your life ,we were not built to become like that’s .
Having no mentor and really trying to make my business work. 1st thing you can never master easy is people, people are unpredictable and those people involve scammers, fake vendors and bad customers. We going to talk about things that’s will really give a young business person a problem starting out ,but I’m not saying give up remember we talked about anticipation ,that’s what I want you to do expect the unexpected.
This has hurt me so badly even now as we speak, I built rental rooms from the scratch just because I saw I have money decided to go to a hardware and get building material and buy a site. While first I was supposed to do my numbers well and plan accordingly but I was so aggressive and with that’s force I manage to overcome all the stumbling blocks, while losing a lot of money because of my impatient.
This approach still hurt me till today but I’m getting better at waiting and really do things slowly ,calculate and see what’s may happen. I never factor the handling fees and taxis that’s raise to 15% the year following the one I bought material and my being forceful worked on my favor.
Thinking people are all the same.
The neighbors I made building this rooms were sweethearts but only one was really not good but we ended up getting along cause I was busy reading books that’s told me to really open up to people and let them show how they want to be perceived. Scammers are still scamming me ,and my awareness is growing to the point that’s as of writing this article I’m looking to make enemies ,for the first time in my life I am plotting to put some people behind bars because they did me wrong.
Maybe I have mentioned this before but I was naïve letting my builder take 80% of his payment before he even begun building and I learn the hard way now I don’t trust anyone a contractor must do the work first I ended up going to court and they kept asking money from me and I decided I will let this one slide. Its clear lawyers are important when doing business but as I’m starting out I cannot invest on a lawyer.
Another naïve thing a entrepreneur can think is customers love him ,that not true customers consider a lot of things but you can build that’s emotional friendship with them because when prices change they can find it hard to leave you. Add your personal feel to your business and so on.
Maybe having an idea is fin and maybe big purchases at some point 10 years or 20 years down the line is fun, but earlier on that’s not the case. My older brother smokes a terrible drug that’s makes him steal a lot and he is really negatively affect my hustle, but for you reading you may experience a different issue. You may have to work harder than everyone and you are the last man to put our fires in your business or what’s ever you doing that’s makes you money.
Since your income fluctuate relationships doesn’t work well but on that’s part you really need some sort of discipline because not paying bills on time is a bad habit so killing it should be your business.
I don’t know when people start businesses that’s they consider dearth but since I have witness it last year a market shop owner being shot dead while trying to stop thugs from stealing the money and they beat the guy that’s was there. Be ready to die for your thing as I have explained above I’m about to build enemies and I cannot let it go cause this is a once off opportunity to put some people in the right place.
And if I feel threatened after this I may act accordingly, I know this is my foot print but this is how far I want to go for my entrepreneurship to work. At the end of the tunnel there is light if I don’t get there the foundation is laced my boys will continue.
Money behavior, handling and its owner
This seems to be the reason for us to start businesses but it end up going beyond this and how can it not. When it comes to molar earlier on its seems to sleep through hands so as a business person learning to save when times are good will be a right step to a right direction.
Diversify and or diversify within your business but never lose direction to what’s really makes you a lot of money. I thought the money I had will last forever and the way I recorded down anything its shows that’s its didn’t matter cause I would explain to the next person why I was recording my expenses and it’s always seems like I’m spending only earlier on.
I learn from Gary veer that’s if you start a business and you don’t make any money within the 1st year you should reconsider the business you in. The Music business I just like that’s so for you reading taking those advices should also mean doing your homework and be sure does the advice apply to me and look at other big players that’s at your stage where were they in the money part.
Be careful of banks as much as they keep the money safe ,the products they offer may not apply to your beliefs life the debts can be good starting out but people are not the same and if customers pay you in some sort of way ,you don’t want to have debt lapsing because you income is beyond your control. Teaching consumers how you want them to pay you can be really be challenging but you must go ahead and tell them besides their differences for e.g. say you in a service business to not get yourself in a defensive side ,take your money first then help after.
Government and Taxes
I’m already on this because although I’m still at the beginning stage of my business life .being on the right side of SARS and ALL the IRS is going to be good for me and my businesses. Because you don’t want to make a lot of money and all of a sudden SARS freezes your bank account and you cannot perform the competitors make fun of you.
The infrastructures putted in place for entrepreneurs by government you should be able to access them that’s means your rates should be intact ,and to be honest my electric bills was out of place but I have dealt with them because I cannot keep looking out for my shoulder that’s will open up for any negativity and my mind space.
That’s the business will work no matter what’s, you won’t fail
Massive challenge came at the beginning of my hustle and I gave up like literary and started focusing on my other capabilities. Like knowing how to manage people’s money and help them with their general needs. That’s work well for me but for a time being, while I was still looking for a job.
So as you are reading be open to the possibility of your business failing but don’t encourage that’s event. Other people switch businesses so fast they don’t check what’s cause the 1st , 2nd and third business failed in the first place and try to fix that’s. Even I I didn’t totally give up, I kept the distance while trying to figure out how I can solve the problem.
When things go wrong you get emotionally so be careful to taking big decisions during that’s time. So accepting and admitting if you have part in a failure is the good move, get back to your life and then come back stronger.
We are living in a noisy era and I can add it’s been like this for many centuries before this one but we can all agree that’s its getting worse. It’s important to get back to the surface and accepts times of boredom, it may seems like Lockdown was the worst thing that’s has happened in our lifetime but I assure you it’s the best thing, you can start looking at your life objectively.
If things are going smooth during times like this its means you on a right path but if you are hit a bit than that a wakeup call. From financial standpoint its clearly means diversifying your investment might be a smart move. Personally you can start practice things like meditations and gym and really incorporate those on your life. Learn mantra’s and all, this are tools to deal with boredom at a highest level and really pay attention to your thoughts.
void is a test of how much your skull thick is
What’s your life manstra? we all need one of those
You see this is not a public information, no one suggests this in their writings and YouTube videos. It’s all grind and hard work now, that’s ok and but I suggests you get in a zone to be at that’s work mode state so you can switch from your work life, home life and your own physic personal life that’s is at individual level. The phone might be the 1st thing you might need to control and really cut it usage during this time.
I have eliminated the noise on my phone and I constantly find myself bored every moment and then something amazing happen I only think the thoughts that will propel me forward in life. That’s might not happen to you because the content you consume with your busy time and people you hang with don’t put any good information to your mind , you might want to change that’s as well so you will have good ideas and breakthrough during this boredom time.
Having pen and paper always in your disposal can be really be helpful , and don’t think sleeping put you in a mode of doing nothing that’s not true ,your body and mind is always busy and create dreams and nightmare at night mess with your heartbeat a bit.
You will see you have a negative habits when you are bored
I experienced this, if you have extra cash at hand you hurt yourself with it, but if you have a strong will power and discipline you are able to choose apples over hot dog to buy and eat that’s moment. Same to boredom, access to porn or movies and internet entertainment can lead you to want to spend your time doing those things in your free time you set to do nothing. I suggest you fight this urges that’s drives you to want to relax this way. I repeat hit pushups and go hard and couple of sets, play a self-improvement audiobook while you are doing that’s. To those who smokes I know you guys always have something to pass time and that’s not nothing , don’t roll that’s blunt even a snap is way better to your doing nothing time but make sure it doesn’t fall to lazy time. If you have something to do during your nothing time and its urgent please do it and make up for that’s loss time. Hanging out with gents or ladies and talking might seems good at the moment but it will mess with all your growth and beliefs.
Something fascinate me, I have a friend we used to be close really close but since I evolve and grow from every aspect of my life, he no longer want to hang with me the pressure I put on him is too much and I understand and that became a blessing in disguise because instead of going to hang with him I listen to audio book or be busy in my music studio work. Now I have learned to mix my songs because that’s used to be his work but since he no longer want to see me then I keep my distance.
Other friend of mine bought dogs and now I’m scared of dog’s .I don’t like them but it’s nothing personal so I can’t visit that’s friend as well and others are far from where I live so ,now I’m responsible for the company coming into my life because I’m no longer going anywhere. I want you reading to pay attention to all of those who you try to squeeze yourself in their lives, is it worth it. Obviously friendship is nice and important, but now since there is a new distance you can also distance yourself emotionally, sometimes we help our friends because we know their daily routine but now since there is this gab when he/ she needs help its won’t be coming from a friend stand point, that’s might be a way for that’s person to use you on something that’s no longer exist.
You can be able to be proactive rather than reactive
If you can learn this skill alone to accept boredom, you can stop reacting to other peoples reasons for you to get out, you can plan things ahead and really take charge of most of your actions. And this time can open a window for you to re-access what’s really working and where your efforts is spent.
I started writing this blogs , while I had a nice job where I stay inside my work place and go at home only in weekends ,finish work at 16:00 every day ,I’ll hit a gym ,cook ,bath and write then when I sleep I put an interesting TV series that’s will help me fall asleep. Now I’m no longer at that’s job, I’m home now and my life is back and I can do everything I want with my time but it’s would be a big mistake giving up on this project . I’m proactive about it, with that’s said no matter where your life takes you, have this nothing time installed in you, walk around and get your mind thinking.
Swing ,is a Music Producer with numerous hits in the bag ….working with a light of Zakwe ,Duncan , Big Zulu ,ShonG , Mfez’emnyama , late Mjikjelwa ,Merel , Mphako and many more wearing this clothing represent culture of music not just hip hop and Maskandi but Swing is involved in Qgom and Amapiano working with TOS as ULwaz No Makhula . At the moment the airing track is by Shon G ft Musiholic – Shine On Produce by him.
As human being we were not made to do nothing, so this time you will have your mind fighting you to do something. And this is the purpose of this moment to figure out what’s to do with your time. Last week while we still at Lockdown I found myself bored and don’t know what’s to do ,but I am a person of principles lot of things comes up as a good action like visiting a friend but I make myself a oath never go to someone not knowing what’s you going to do to him.
Why I wrote this controversial topic
From a workaholic view or burn outs that’s might be a thing but people who are moving at that’s pace has a great work ethic and I recommend it. Reading and writing is working too so to all people who like to work physically, move to other skills like listening and really pay attention and connects all the necessary dots to things you listening to .If your girlfriend or spouse talk, be able to process in their tone what’s important and what’s not, Back to the topic, the reason I wrote this I saw a guy I look up too really get frustrated when pandemic began and everything around it.
Since he had to stop working and all the systems he is involved in gat hited a bit now seeing him trying to convince authority to open the doors of work, made me realize there is never one dope strategy to live life and workaholic is really not one of them, that’s why smart should come through and really get away from things that’s seems to make up your life.
At home they call me, the moment I leave home for 2 days and that’s ok but at some point they should see me leaving and really get disconnected a bit intentionally, why? Because circumstances can do this as well, so why we are not practicing as people? They why we take so much hit when a family member passes, we don’t anticipate this moments. Family is important but balance is really recommended, I love my mother and father but the fact that’s I don’t live with them is a real relief the pain is not the same.
So you can count your blessings during that’s time
Social media has become our diaries, but this things disappear and they are now trying to monitor our memories and that’s good but even if you find yourself having amnesia those memories won’t resonate with you. Memories worth remembering you will always remember so, I suggest you don’t take social media’s features seriously and embed them too much in your life.
Have offline tools instead, if you download an offline calendar even if the company who made it, closes you will remain having it. Back to the subtitle Blessings, do you make time to be thankful for things you have achieved? If you too busy you cannot do that’s and moving forward you can’t keep up because you won’t have a north star, you just drifting through life.
Gratitude and be conscious of things that’s are going well in your life, can be a cool realization. I always heard that’s successful rich people hit a gym and trying that’s has showed me wonders, I once hit a gym and felt so fresh and I saw that’s right now I’m really healthy. I can add don’t overdo things, that’s their impact can be undercut by other life challenges. Hitting 2hrs of gym and 0 on your finances is not a smart way to spend your do nothing time.
Stop thinking and start strategizing, I thought strategy was a critical thing a person can do but all it is, is plan of action now thinking is important because you going to think though the strategy .Bu saying I’m thinking of buying a car, is far from saying on December I’m buying a car because I’m saving R4000 a month and my Bonus is so much if I put it, I can get the car I’m aiming for. Now that’s strategy my brothers and sisters.
Once again thank you for hanging with us, this might be a great spot for you on your free time, have something to focus on for few minutes and have your life transformed. Follow us on all social Medias as ULwaz No Makhula, we are LnM in short it’s a new era don’t be excited working physical hard work, put the work in your mind and let your body enjoy life. Have your spirit connect with people and really made the most of the time you spend in this world.
Welcome to LnM and don’t be offended by the title of today’s topic, but I realized when starting writing this blogs that’s there was nothing special about writing. You just have to pay attention to other people’s format and repeat with different message or same message putted differently from your own experience.
Today I will touch on writing a song and anything you might want to write. My understanding there are few reason to writing like talking is to get a feedback or a messages across ,you can use it as a form of mediation as a reminder and lastly to teach someone or many people at once following certain system.
You are not an amateur if you have something to say
Platforms like social media makes people write for terrible agenda’s but if you are reading this I want you to shift your mind. Think of something valuable you can write about that’s unique to you that’s you think people can benefits from.
That’s it’s all its takes see for me I once reply on twitter on Microsoft post where they want to revolutionize the journalism industry and they wanted people views , I replied and because there is no spelling corrector there I sent the messages but it’s had a lot of grammar so that’s me admitting to the fact that’s there is terrible writing .But I saw tons of like because others understood what’s I was trying to say and only blame the grammar which lead me to putting in browser spelling corrector and that’s when my handicap disappeared ,Microsoft word had me lazy to master spelling but either way I leverage it and avoid unnecessary work.
don’t be destructed
2. You need to know how to think deeply /connect the dots from the main subject to pieces
English is not my mother’s tong but it doesn’t matter its mine now, what’s important is that’s when you write you don’t deviate too much from the reason why you pick up your fingers and type on the first place.
And know if you have a format you have created for yourself like saying like me ,I don’t write below 5 points so whatever I’m talking about I should think even points that’s doesn’t exists to hit my target lollI’m kidding but you get the point.
I could write one script for 3 days because points may be missing at the moment I started so when I get back at it the next day I’m fresh , I keep going. Pay attention to all your material and reread your subtitles to not repeat the same things in different ways ,this apply to artists as well using same unique words on your lyrics or lines makes you seem lazy and not appreciated by your fans. As much as I always suggest writing from a stand point of writing for yourself realize you shouldn’t fool you. As people we want something fresh and new every time.
3. Tackle real issues
By this point you are a writer and for you to be recognized as a better amateur you need to come through at an issue and break it apart and put your powerful two sense. Meaning don’t hurry talking and using information other people already said about the subject , let it cool off and start to do your due diligence as a writer.
I will refer again to corona virus the songs was coming left and write from artists talking about this in its early stages, I waited and manage to do a three verse song with most of what’s has happened and my take about it. You see when you do that’s by then you have all the facts like Mr.
Warren Buffet say’s I don’t care what’s the stock market is doing for as long as I know the facts. So don’t try to pick up the trends writers are original and so should you .What’s has worked for me the most is to write more from my experiences than through research why is that’s because its seems practical for my readers.
Writers put their thought into papers then average people put all their thought in to action even if it’s harmful one. Wealthy people write a lot, I wouldn’t imagine myself spending a day without jotting anything down my point here just know to be great in life you should write.
Be your goals ,Budget and so on its associated with writing and most importantly write reminders of things you must do and things you already done and keep a head space in your head. I putted wealthy people so you can be encouraged to do it. Please don’t take the writing practice and rally people with it or thinks if people write something different from you they are not writer’s or they’re bad ones. I don’t consider myself a great thinker but the thought and ideas I get from reading other peoples work is amazing.
I hate the fact that’s math’s comes hard to me but words don’t so to become great at something also consider your weaknesses ,maybe you should be a statistician or a logical thinker and really crush people’s emotional weaknesses when they take decisions without contacting the head 1st. So on that’s case you love math simplify it for people like us and make it attractive and I’m sure I can read that’s.
Learning is now so easy , to the point that ignorant is stupid
5. Only do outlines if you are writing a huge content like a book or more than 5 pages
Other writer’s may disagree and that’s ok , but my goal here is to make a amateur love to write so once I get too technical I will lose that’s guy or girl. Don’t draw your points for a side points you just wrote unless it’s part of research. But it’s your own dreams and horror’s you experienced just follow your memory and tell us what’s happened.
As of writing this how to write for beginners, I have no other person’s opinion because I cannot confirm that’s and I have no outline either all I do is I write about the things I know. I stare at my title and see value I can give out of it.
There are steps like editing and proof reading in a writing process , for now I’m asking you to do it yourself or do things once and lets the world figure .right now I’m writing from that’s stand point all I know if you squeeze my work hard enough you will find the juice.
6. Why anyone should practice writing?
For legacy purposes, for meditation purposes when you write you get lost and really focus so I want that’s experience for you. Reading is the same thing and way better because through reading you get to have a sense of knowing new thing and your horizon get broaden.
And to be honest with you if I didn’t read the books, I would’ve not written anything in my life. Tweets and posts is not writing and the reasons behind that’s writing is wrong. No one entertain meaningful things there so you always get discouraged. Not hating on this platforms but when you write, write and when you play, play. A bonus what’s writing will do to you, you will stop wanting to write on social media its will seem lame and not life altering.
You know I am a very sensitive person ,I don’t know why but it’s because I have increased my awareness in life so I wouldn’t allow you to come here and show me a picture of a dead person cause that’s night it will mess with my sleep cycle. But if I listen to a song with a violence nothing happen so as we touching on how many times you should release songs ,I might add that’s maybe in your location music don’t last in terms of people playing and enjoying it. But I want to give you an advice teach your fans your own manageable routine. As you can see this does not apply to musicians only, authors, business people, Arts artists and so on you can use this examples in your own work.
Are you a trendsetter or a trend follower / capitilizer?
We are seeing songs about #Coronavirus and #Lockdowns meaning this songs will never be classics and shows the level of creativity some artists have and them being opportunists. The negative on this is an artist does not have a substance and a real reason why people follow him/her, there is no cause or style he represents. Meaning there is no particular time to release so for us we don’t recommend this strategy.
We suggest you get out of the noise of trends and give people something else to talk about and stick to your normal schedule.
So for anticipation reasons and ability to capitalize on one song at a time. A rule of thumb is, if the song is still hot don’t interrupt it with another song, make money out of it and repeat.
Doing it for myself
Doing it for my family
Doing it for human kind
Don’t know why im doing this
Ask yourself this questions.
2 How long should I wait before I release another song?
If you want to release lot of songs for your audience, release E.P or Mix tape and most preferably Album and try to make this cash cow as possible or otherwise you will be wasting your time. For a single 3 months is a best minimum , push one song for the average of this time , we see others keep releasing and its seems like they’re worried about fading away or something .We suggest you don’t worry about that’s much and try other ways to keep yourself relevant.
3 You don’t need a pattern if you don’t have a budget in place.
You will disappear in a thin air if you release without a plan and there is a article dealing with this specifically. So have a budget and priorities of this is what’s I will bet on as a vehicle to push this single. It’s may be PR , Marketing and distribution or Radio Plugging and so on , I see a lot of artists making a mistake of wanting this services from unprofessional people or companies. Look you will lose money if you naïve , I don’t specialize in the above things but I can recommend some companies for you and hear me well I will be recommending not telling because the marketing campaigns might not work and I don’t want to be to blame.
4 Don’t look at other artists patterns of releasing music, focus on you.
Big Zulu releases everytime, he already has an audience which for you reading this might be something you gatta build. He’s seeing his efforts and he is really productive, releases music videos for his songs so that’s a proper strategy there. What’s about you why you will drop next week? To bother people and ask them to push you? Or to try your luck and send Dj Tira or Oskido your link? That’s strategy is overused and be careful we made a mistake as ULwaz No Makhula to send links too early ,when songs were not in great quality and while we were not visible on Google. Some artists do music because they know someone at the top and that’s can be an advantage but what’s happens after he has talked on your behalf? Can you deliver or you will ruin his reputation? that’s why you should work hard and smart to prove you are a force to be reckon with then use that’s contact and then maybe you can present your strategy in your new team, and say this is how I release music and I know there will be lot of work and gigs but let’s try to be consistence with this.
5 Know you may have personal challenges that’s might prevent you from your usual routine.
This point is simply for routine so here how this work ,you work in advance and place the online release dates on line ,get some Social media apps and place the links accordingly and announce the release dates then prepare YouTube video schedules as well and the campaigns on all social medias . Others may frequently require you to authorize, you can deal with that’s when the time comes ,that’s way you will put most of the work upfront and only answer fans comment and take gigs as they come. This also means placing a face book ad earlier and promotion on twitter earlier. When something bad happen or anything needs your attention you can deal with it. Like this blogs I do them every time at home but when I post them I post them once for them to appear every day on my twitter and face book as well as instagram clearly am there without being there all the time. Now this saves me data and time.
6 Anticipate the lazy times.
This one is more like the above one but in a real time work where you write and record songs. You can have a way to encourage yourself, I know for me it’s easy I make a dope beat I write for it. If its gqom it’s easier I get the beat from other producers and work on in immediately before its bores me. So find a way to reward yourself after every session that’s way you will know the immediate pay off of your efforts. I know I don’t need any ,I just get full filled that’s I manage to hit my daily task or pattern and I have a new effective strategy rather than writing a song for one day ,I just write one verse a day and maybe I finish writing in three days. Why I do this I realized that’s my 1st verses are always way doper than second and third ones so I needed a system to balance that’s and so far it hasn’t fail me. So this system allows you to be lazy and effective at the same time, in the book I recently read they had something like this where an artist put a minimum of 25 min on a task. I saw writing a verse is different depending on its complexity and content others take longer and other are quick to finish.
I was taking a video of myself writing and time was flying and I couldn’t believe it cause I thought I value my time but why my passion waste so much of my time? , we will never know its feels right doing it and I think I’m doing important thing with my life especially for myself. On the other hand knowing this I can dedicate my time accordingly because if I spend so much doing that’s and returns are small, I know in the long run they might be huge but I need to make moves that’s will make that’s long run closer meaning I get 9-5 or something and pay for this to get to the right people who will see value and want me to come and entertain or teach with it.
Thank you for taking the time, I most appreciate improving yourself using my life experience and pit falls. If you are a artist or a business person we have a small book on amazon called Music Insider 16 pages of simply contacts you can use to get some the things done with in the music industry.
As of writing this, I recently does what I have always does after sometime,deleting contacts on my phone that’s no longer useful. I am a music producer and lot of things within music which sometimes needs audience on Social media but when removing contact’s linked with my whatsapp I realized that’s my whatsapp is liability every morning I have a newmessage from people asking for something to me .a song , a free beat or an advice about music which lead to me opening thing blog ,instead of people consuming my time one by one ,I rather dedicate time and write articles and there is a book by ULwaz No Makhula on Amazon called Music Insider that’s has all the contact’s you will need as a musician. With all that’s said I recommend a book called Deep Work on this topic , without waste of time let’s get to today’s topic.
Life is made out of minites and seconds , the time you misuse is giving your life away.
1. So that’s you will live life worth living
If you can pay attention, to what’s you do the moment you wake up to the time you sleep, you will see where your life is going. I want us to be realistic here say you have a car and what’s you do is helping people and at the end of the day you have nothing to show for it do you think that’s is good living? Or say you wake up wash your face and go straight to hang out in the store with other guys is that’s worth doing? If you are attacked by this and you wish to respond be my guest but I doubt we will find a common ground. The goal of this articles is to open your eyes and have some cause you living for as going to work year after year is much better but if it’s not backed by a bigger cause you might be drifting through life and you will die to oblivious even to the most people in your life and I will suggest you avoid that’s by all mean. If you are an artist going to record every day and do beats non-stop can be exciting and really time consuming but when all said and done does it help the well living of your bottom line?
2.To see if you not spending most of your day in daily choirs and your life is static, not improving.
For a person who is serious about life, my goal is to escape all the menial tasks at home and hire a person to those for me. Others can afford to do this but yet they know if someone do their dishes and clean their house will open a gab in their schedule and they don’t want to face that’s ,while others think it’s the kids job and not to be awkward kids needs to learn this things cause they are basic in life ,cooking and all but the hard things should be what’s we instill to ourselves and our kids ,that’s reading books of personal development and biographies of great successful people as well as focus on our relationships ,that’s if you are married have time for your spouse intentionally and get out of the noise of daily tasks that’s surely will be worthwhile. Learn and teach about money which is really a challenging subject and a unique thing to deal with but if you can master that’s part all will seems to be running smooth. And your time alone focus on something, it may be hobby or something you feel may make a difference in your community or world. I know you may said let me see what’s this guy says and your life doesn’t go this lines and maybe you already have a worker but I’m sure somewhere you need to clean up and get your life in order.
3. So your will know that’s if you die today, you gave it your best.
As human beings all the worried that’s we have dearth seems to come on top, yet we seems to forget about it when we look at our priorities. I have some business where I have customers and I know more about what’s going on in the service I’m providing then then do from previous experience, because they don’t know some minor challenges is a huge issue with them so you too, you can say but during my day I’m serving people and they complain and all of that’s, the complaints may be valid but you know what’s you need to fix now or 1st that’s even if you die now your family can inherit viable business. So with all the above analogies take action that’s once done will open many possibilities for you , for me was watching certain channels on YouTube they really change my life and I would know who I am if I didn’t stubble on those ,then those channels introduced me to books and book 10x everything as I saw books are hard and you need to develop the habit in order to read and understand them , I took the route of audiobooks ,I still read books cause is the number one way to acquire information and since audiobooks are passive you can miss most important things.
4 To be a better organized person.
So since I lost my job in 2017, its opened me to the other part of life that’s seemed real and tough which if I didn’t lose my work I would’ve thought life is easy and poor people are lazy, loosing that’s job I got another one eventually its didn’t pay as good but still I was arrogant bragging that’s how come people don’t get jobs I just got another one. See my uncle tried to explain to me the privileges I have but I couldn’t understand until I lost that’s job again and realized I wasn’t good at it. Humility grew on me and I started to feel for people who are not doing well in life as I was now a bit in their shoes ,luckily for me I got curious and learnt this new mindset I’m suggesting here, getting back to the point because of the knowledge I have acquired and habits I have instilled in myself the last to jobs I worked in not even once I was late ,why was that’s I became organized as I started to take my day seriously ,automatically I respected my boss ,I even got a job where I wasn’t supervised and that’s compelled me to perform way better so when they barge on me I was on track and it’s all work well for me till I decided to leave and if you don’t plan your life in daily dose many distractions will come your way you might not write everything you need to do but the one thing that’s you must do every day should be in your head ,saying if every day I did this one hard thing that’s is out of my comfort zone than my day will be worth it ,this suggests even if you don’t know how you going to get paid from this ,doing it and knowing maybe that’s there is a market for it its what’s matters and do that’s for a long whole. We are human one day missed because of the emergency is fine but make up for that’s loss time.
Action ,thats will forever change the trajectory of your life
Reach out to us for any life advice and music related information ,don’t give up ,don’t commit suicide ,don’t reply on your anger before contacting us , we will help you look things from a different angle
In my community nothing seems to be urgent, for youth and technology invading our lives its worse .ULwaz No Makhula which is me and my friend we saw a really powerful work habits combining our music brand together we amazed our fans doing what’s other artists do in a year in 3 months. So in December everyone was going crazy as usual, we had our little craziness but it was mostly work. We submitted our music video that’s we shot on November then we recorded 3 new songs and got helped choosing a single for January then on January we dropped a music video on TV channels and YouTube , February we dropped a single and march we boosted our page and reach 3000 followers and sometime releasing another new song. I know others know people who release more than that is but I will assure you it’s expensive to market music and everything within it, that’s why there are few main players in the game. We were efficient in our tasks, 1. Because we pushed one another and both want what’s best for the group 2. Because we want to be successful as soon as we can for me the beginning of the year all my chips were in the music table and lastly 3. We are clear about what’s we are doing.
So you too, reschedule your day, week, month and so on if you working with someone we are people and ever changing don’t make huge decisions under a spark of a moment try by all means to be objective and lets situation pass and lastly what’s I will recommend the goal of having a partner in whatever you do is not for you to hold back what’s ever eating you inside as well as not bursting without thinking. You may ask to think about it or agree and if you feel you not ok with the decision reconsider but don’t put the whole building done because of a minor misunderstanding. And lastly don’t be a inefficient one in a team. Bonus point!!

6. So that’s you will have a day that’s you are proud of
Do we average people have this kind of days? I doubt it, or rarely if it’s not my 9-5 that’s fulfill my day then I have a problem. Knowing that’s jobs are simply a economic transaction system I know is a way for me to get money are there other ways yes about 7 or more .But depending on your job or you are in a lockdown as we are now you can feel your job is a gateway drug to something meaningful that’s at least pay your bills. If not you drag to wake up in the morning and let alone doing the work ,I’m not a guru here I’m a 29years guy who once experienced the day that’s he was proud of ,here it is at the age of 26 after I lost the job I was talking about above ,I simply took my provident fund and decided to build a rental rooms so during the construction I saw a shift in my life ,that’s I wish for you to experience as well in your life time ,its dint matter that’s I was losing money or investing but my Monday was exciting and I couldn’t wait to wake up and arrive at the site because what’s was going on there was mine and it has a potential to change my life forever knowing or not. Those day I ticked off a lot of things on my daily tasks it was amazing lots of good and bad and backstabbing and so forth but it was worth it , I grew with those experiences I was a boss for a moment in charge of a project without proper schooling about this I only knew what’s I wanted. I changed for the better there and what’s happened after changed me more I got encouraged to read more and its was a perfect time for me to change from the old 9-5 working me because I would’ve sided with my workers and nothing would’ve got done. I read books, I understood that’s if you in my position you need to have a way of doing things and mine was be nice but don’t tolerate sh*t and that’s way I manage to go far as I did and learned to cultivate a powerful relationship with my neighbors there whom at first I had my own wrong 30 second preconception about them, where you normally conclude a person character and attitude within 30 sec you met, the book I read called African midwives really helped me. It’s the 1st time I published something with so much of my personal life in it. You will be proud of your days if you really make them yourself and not anyone who comes to you and ask for whatever that’s doesn’t seems to help you but balance.
