Steps for making art by Wynton Marsalis:

seek instruction
make a schedule
set goals – chart development
focus while practicing
relax, practice slowly, you can’t be in a hurry if you’re gonna get better
practice the things you can’t do – don’t rehearse your instincts
always give maximum expression – invest
don’t be too hard on yourself
don’t show off
think for yourself
be optimistic
look for connections to other things

**********************

Just think, if you did this every day with such intention, no matter what you do, what you would accomplish.
Best, Katherine
