Amateurs, Experts

For years after I began producing music on my computer, I didn’t finish a single track.

I would start them, play around a bit, make something like half a song and then drop it.

I couldn’t see the point of finishing anything as I knew how much I had to learn to be considered proficient”. No point in wasting time finishing lame tracks, I thought. But as I explored my old tracks lately, I was hit by how interesting some of that music was. It was worth finishing. It was worth sharing.

I figured, the difference between amateurs and experts boils down to frequency.

Amateurs can eventually make great things. Experts can reliably make great things.
