My morning dump

The morning dump... haha sounds a little foul but i promise its not what you think. 

Anyway Sunday morning i went through and made a list of everything that needed to get done that was on my mind. I like it call it the morning dump. Getting rid of all the excess if you will. 

Being an artist i think it can be tough sometimes to get out of the creative mindset for five seconds and be practical. The constant debate i have with my close ones, and even myself, is You CANT schedule inspiration! If you do that... it becomes forced. I know a ton of people that would disagree but my argument is this... why do you think that every big artist that gets put on a label releases one or two good albums then everything else seems to go down hill? It's because the label created deadlines and unrealistic measures that had to be met. People often forget that most of the first two projects were songs or ideas that had been worked on for the majority of that artists' life. 

Being that i've studied both the business and dive into the creative side everyday, this debate is ongoing and i find myself a bit skitz from the whole thing. What is the perfect balance??? 

I'm sure that for each person its different but i thought i'd share what my mornings like-

Basically I start my day i go through and clear my mind of anything that needs to be done in the next week and collect anything that didn't get done in the last week. (ie. Track Vocals for feature, mix song prior to guitar session, finish laundry, get oil change, call pops, etc.) Things of that nature. 

Once i get my action list prepped i start assigning dates to each task by scheduling them on my iCalendar that is synced with my iPhone. This way when inspiration hits i can focus completely on the moment rather than filling my subconscious mind with all of the garbage of preparation and unplanned tasks. The idea is to clear the my mind of all the random shit and allow myself the mental space to create from a deeper place. That's exactly what our body does with the waste... it gets rid of it. It dumps it so our body can take in more of the good. So that's what i do every morning with my thoughts. I get up have a cup of coffee, take a mental dump, and then go exercise for 15-30 minutes to get the blood flowing. 
Then i come home with a fresh head and ready to work.
