Learn Something New Every Day
If your objective is to play high quality music, make sure you’re learning something new every day that will help you in that direction. If your objective is to sell 5,000 copies of your CD, make sure you’re learning something new every day about how to do that. Knowledge is the tool that will get you where you want to be, and having more of it in better quality will only help you get there faster.
If you need suggestions for things to learn, try looking on the websites of any major music school and see what kinds of courses interest you. You might try learning a thing or two about sequencing or recording. That kind of knowledge could really come in handy when it comes to producing an demo track or even an album.
The other advantage of continuous learning, at least for me, is that it keeps me down to earth. I may think I know a lot about music, but there are so many things I don’t know that might really help me if I did. I need to keep an open, receptive mind to all that is out there, and always being on the lookout for new knowledge is a great way for me to do that.
