It's nearly October. Little more than three months before another year turns over. What are you planning on learning between now and then?


Q. What three books are you going to tackle? What subjects?


Snag three popular books on finances, business, marketing, your art of choice and even biographies about successful artists. Or read three different categories and expand your reach. Imagine that more mature and engaged version of yourself three books, three ideas, three practical tools further along your journey.


Q. What new genre's are you going to explore by the end of the year?


Seriously. What new styles of music are you going to find the quintessential authors, composers, designers, producers, creators of? Pick one or two or three and press in deep. Why do they do what they do? How does it come together? What's inspiring you? What can you adapt and adopt and engage?


Q. What free class are you going to invest in?


There are a million options out there for free or incredibly affordable classes, training, workshops and conferences. What one class will you commit to exploring, learning from and leaning into before the year comes to an end?


When you think back to previous years, how do you feel about how you finished up those seasons? Did you press on to end them strong and engaged and empowered in your craft? How do you want to end this year? After all, we live in the freest, most opportunity enhanced, most artistically open and engaged society the world has ever known... so how are you growing in and toward your creative goals?


I'm convinced that our creative pursuits in their healthiest, honest and uniquely unifying forms, are the overflow of a creative God engaged in creation. Which means that you and I, as we learn and grow on purpose, are tapping into something supernatural right here in our creative dirt. Are you tapping into it?
