One of the more important things I've learned lately has been the importance of seeing your vision through in the creation of art. In a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, Andy Kessler commented that Jobs was successful because he focused on "figuring out what he wanted and controlling the process until he got it."
On a similar note, the documentary about Pixar on Netflix echoes this mindset. Producers at Pixar said that they were able to have such a successful track record due to the fact that they simply made movies that they themselves would want to watch. This seems like an obvious question, but do you write the kind of songs that you would want to listen to? In the publishing world, it can get pretty confusing whose taste you are trying to appeal to--your own, your publisher's or the listener.
Keep writing (songs you would want to hear),
