LIVE in THE SPOTLIGHT
- How to practice: exploring strategies and tactics in an aging body through book reviews, interviews, personal anecdotes, with the goal of staying happy, healthy and focused.
- Attitude: what it is a good attitude, how does helps us to learn and persevere, which daily tactics help us to acquire or keep a good one, what to do if yours needs a tune up?
- Metacognition: what it is, what it can teach us about learning, resources for study, conferences, and in practice.
- Intrinsic motivation: what it is, how it helps us to learn and persevere as we age, how to help those we mentor with theirs.
I'm trying to follow Brad Stulberg's program. BTW, I can't recommend his work highly enough.
I'm working out three times a week, practice times are blocked out. Accountability partner and I are in touch each week. I'm upping the piano time, goal is to match drum time with piano time. Twenty hours on the bench and throne. I'm up to 15 hours and still intact. I'll stay in touch on progress.
It's 7 AM time to hit the practice studio for an hour of drumming.
