Working to a deadline…

I’m releasing a brand new track tomorrow.

Well not just me – it has been written, recorded and produced in conjunction with a group of over 20 teenage musicians, 5 professionals and a skilled studio engineer in The Blue Room Recording Studio.

The project has been funded by Sligo County Council through the Creative Sligo Open Call, and a video for it has been shot by KDM Productions.

The thing is, we don’t have a title yet. And we’re still recording one or two small parts this morning (including a last minute bass vocal!). And the final draft of video still has to be completed. And I have to send my documents in this afternoon to make sure we get the funding. And I have a blog to write.

But we’ll get it all done, and it will be ready for tomorrow.

You’ve heard it many times before – there’s nothing like a deadline to focus the mind and to up your pace of work.

Sometimes they are imposed on us, sometimes it pays to impose one on yourself, or indeed sometimes it’s better get someone to impose one on you.

Since most of us have various paces of working, why not try and reach the higher tempos more often?
