Shaan: I work during the day and have little time in evening. I really really want absolute pitch is there a quick and easy way of acquiring this skill?
Graham: Shaan, can you commit 15 minutes a day 5 days a week? In my experience, that’s all you need. I still practice my listening skills about 30 minutes a day. I’m still systematically trying to get better. It really pays off.
I like to focus on “quick and easy” too. That’s why I schedule it in and commit to it. That’s the only way I know how to do it. I wish there was a magic pill. But it’s just like going to the gym. Some days are harder than others. But going to the gym 3 days a week for 30 minutes is better than not going at all.
Bottom line, if you “really really want it”, then you’ll make the minimal time required to get it 🙂 Just know that it can be gotten!
If you’re having “time” problems, I highly recommend this book:
“Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” (David Allen)
