Re: Balancing out your practice

Take at least one photo a day.  Practice at least one song on piano a
day.  Practice looping for 15 minutes every day.  Not sure what kind
of production work you mean but do something similar.  Keep an eye on
all the things you want to do and devote a tiny bit of your attention
(something that doesn't feel overly burdensome) and keep moving.

I find a lot of my time in music and looping is actually gestation
time where I've devoted a lot of free time to thinking about the small
details so that when I have time to actually play, I find a lot of
processes and procedures are no longer present (programming ideas,
loop arrangements, controller settings, etc.).

That's my quick take at the moment.

Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
