Obstacles are signals for change, and creative self-evolution is crucial to the survival of your commitment, artistic or not.

It’s how you handle the inevitable obstacles surrounding any commitment that can make or break your commitment. I’m willing to bet that, due to some obstacle, many artistic commitments do not end exactly as they were envisioned. In this series of vignettes dedicated to different types of obstacles one may face when entering into a commitment, artistic or not, I advocate logical and creative awareness and self-evolution in order to advance your commitment and yourself.

About the speaker

I’m a music theorist -feel free to Google that- and a teacher of music literacy courses. If you’re thinking of coming to my talk about commitment, here’s what you can expect: This talk is a series of vignettes, each vignette dedicated to a different type of obstacle an artist may face when entering into an artistic commitment. I’m willing to bet that, due to some obstacle, many artistic commitments do not end exactly as they were envisioned. Through it all, self-evolution is crucial to the survival of commitment, not just artistic ones. (Given the time constraint, I will not pretend the talk is comprehensive, but it is timely and not just for the benefit of artists.)

Commitments start small, but you can’t afford to dwell within a commitment. You must think around the commitment where the inevitable obstacles await. If there is a single obstacle you can’t handle, you either self-evolve your commitment to handle it, or your commitment will crumble. — Rodney Garrison
