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
