If you successfully write more than one song at a time, good for you. 🙂
But if you struggle to finish songs, narrowing your choices will motivate you more.
It's been well-researched that when you have too many choices, you lose motivation.
Offer students a choice of 6 essays, rather than 30 essays, for extra-credit and more will take up the opportunity if there is less choice of essay titles - and, what is more, they write better essays.
If you have dozens of unfinished songs lying around, odds are that most of them won't get finished.
An organized songwriter is more likely to be a productive songwriter. And if you have a songwriting process to follow, then this piece of advice will be simple...
Always be focused on finishing one song.
You don't have to stop capturing new song ideas. But if you want to finish more songs, always have one song at the top of your list that takes priority.
Keep this in mind, every behavior you repeat becomes a habit. Starting songs that you don't finish is a bad habit to repeat.
Finishing songs takes practice and focus.
Stay focused. 🎯
