13. You’re always thrown into the ringer because people think you’re best suited to be the one who gives the presentation, confronts the boss, gives the speech, etc. Meanwhile, you’re practically throwing up over the thought of it.

‘Stay (I Missed You)’ by Lisa LoebInspired by today’s Soundcheck podcast: in the summer of 1994 I was… 12? And this was absolutely one of my favourite songs I heard on the TV but it was years before I learned who it was by.

The mistake is to be so scared about income that you forget to schedule space for pure creativity, assuming you’ll just fit that in, in between admin and organised stuff. I learnt (painfully actually) a few years ago that if you have a creative goal (even with no specific known financial outcomes) you have to schedule that time in as firmly as possible, otherwise the creative side of your work falls prey to the administrative side. That’s just a very pompous way of saying, Chris, put it in your diary to get off the fucking computer and play some guitar.
