O principal é deixar que flua sem vírgulas no caminho, pois o Amor é uma frase interminável que começa com maiúscula e se escreve de dentro para fora e vice-versa, e cuja leitura nunca termina, até que acaba. (Bruno Campel)

A Musicians Guide To Setting And Achieving Goals For 2011

It's a new year and a clear slate is in front of all of us. The turning of the calendar from 2010 to 2011 is an ideal time to set your goals. I see a marked difference between artists who set finite goals and those who do not.

Many of you may have seen this article (or another one) on setting goals as they crop up at this time of year.
Ask yourself: Is this the year I want to make a difference for my musical career? And if so – what difference and how?
Think of goal setting as if you were driving in a foreign place - You wouldn’t get where you expect to go without a clear set of directions. Goal setting is like drawing a map for yourself.
This article is designed to assist you in creating a personal roadmap for achieving what you would like with your musical career this year, whether you consider music your hobby or you are making a living out of it full-time.
I have included a few links from some of the best musician related posts on how to think about and achieve goals as well. So, bookmark this long article and refer to it throughout the year!


Many studies have proven that long-term perspective is the most accurate single predictor of upward social and economic mobility in America. And it has been proven that people who have goals written down are much more likely to achieve them.


STEP 1: Write Down Your Focus Areas

Here is a list of some areas you may want to focus on. Skip the ones that are not for you and write out each focus area goal.

Branding - Your look and feel your image and health or your pitch.

Marketing - What will you do this year for your marketing plans.

Rick Goetz at has written a great 2 part guide on how to attack a record release social media marketing plan with intention:

Newsletter - Creating and sending it 12 - 24 times this year & how many people can be added to your famail and e-mail list.

Website - Building a new one or diversifying your online presence.

Social Networking - How’s your Facebook fan page looking?
PR - Getting covered on radio, print or online.

Booking - Touring or local gigs this year or a combination?

CDs & downloads – How many would you release and sell.

Money - How much money you would like to earn?

Film and TV placements - Will you work towards them this year?

Expanding your fan base - How will you do this?
Team – Will you be trying to get a manager or a booking agent?
Time – How will you manage to balance your time this year to make sure you can focus on your musical goals?

Writing songs – Recording an album or EP this year?

Instrument - Buying a new instrument or taking lessons?

Personal health - So your performance is better – exercise, eating etc.
