Here we are again at the start of a new year….2018! Many of us make new years resolutions and try to reset for what’s in store. If learning to sightread is your goal, then as with anything else, it takes much discipline.
This past year I went on a journey of health. After years of trying to skate around reality, I finally decided that to be healthy, both in mind and body, I had to incorporate serious discipline and sacrifice into my daily schedule. No quick diets, or fancy home gym gadgets were going to do the trick. It was time to buckle down and get to work. It’s hasn’t been easy at all. In fact, I realized that I let many years pass by without sticking to a regimen and to have to reverse all of that is brutal……but definitely doable.
It takes time, going when you don’t want to go, working when you don’t want to work, eating right when you would love to have that pizza. But in the end, it has been life changing.
I heard a quote early in my life that said, “anything worth having in life, takes sacrifice.” Sacrifice is giving up one thing for the sake of a better cause. Good ole fashioned discipline is crucial.
So if you want to sightread, take the time. Make the sacrifice to gain this incredible skill. A little bit everyday goes a long way.
Happy New Year!!!
