Maybe the most awesome thing about waking up from a great New Year’s Eve DJing or partying is that we’re all given a fresh start. Having had time to fully recover from hopefully an excellent night out, we’d like to ask you: What’s your DJ goal for 2015?
If you still haven’t thought of one, now would be a great time to commit to at least one goal for the year that would take your career further. Maybe you’d want to learn more advanced DJ skills like scratching or harmonic mixing, or maybe you’ve been putting off getting a professional press kit together? Perhaps you’ll finally want to make an original production this year or take that mashup idea you’ve been playing around with in your head and turn it into an actual track that you can share with the world? Or maybe it’s simply to get your first public DJ set or your first paying gig?
Whatever, we’d love to hear what your goal is, and we’ve decided this year that we’re also going to help you achieve it – directly and for free. Here’s how to set your goal and use us to help you achieve it:
3 Simple Steps To Achieving Your DJing Goal In 2015
1. Choose a good goal
Make your goal clear, specific, and realistic (“I want to have played three paying gigs by 31 December” is better than “I want to start earning money DJing”). Another great tip is to break it into smaller mini-goals that will serve as your road map for achieving it, and put dates on each mini-goal. As far as realistic goes – well, playing Tomorrowland by Easter probably isn’t in your league, so set something achievable within 12 months. There’s always next year to build on your ambition…
2. Post your goal in the comments section below
Next, let the world know. By publicly committing to your goal and having it in plain view, you’re more likely to stick to it because you’ve got the entire Digital DJ Tips community behind you (you might even get some good tips from our members!). It’s a proven fact that making yourself accountable for your goals means you’re more likely to achieve them.
3. Do the work – we’ll follow up to see how you’re doing…
Of course you’ve got to do the work once you’ve set the goal, but we’re also going to hold you accountable for your goal personally! We’ll follow up privately one-to-one with you in the middle and towards the end of this year by email, to check in on how you’re doing. It’s like a little bit of personal coaching! then, at the end of the year, we’ll publish an article with some of this year’s success stories – and you could be in it!
Do this now…
Sounds good? We hope so! So, if you’re serious about improving your DJing in 2015, and would like a little bit of help from the Digital DJ Tips team and community to help you get your DJing closer to where you want it to be this year, do the first step now: Decide on your goal and share it below immediately.
So – go ahead and write your DJ goal for 2015 in our the comments below. If you see another goal in the thread that you’re familiar or have accomplished in the past, feel free to give advice, too. We’ll be here for you every step of the way!
