<font color="#E5E5E5">welcome to the production game your</font>

daily<font color="#E5E5E5"> espresso shot of instant instant</font> insight and inspiration my name is<font color="#CCCCCC"> mike monday and today you're</font> going to discover my foolproof <font color="#E5E5E5">three-part process to cure</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> analysis</font> paralysis

<font color="#CCCCCC">now when</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I say</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> analysis</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> paralysis</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> why</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">main is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> general</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> decision-making</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> problems</font> and the problems are in essence decision load<font color="#CCCCCC"> so often when we're trying to</font> produce music<font color="#E5E5E5"> when you're trying to</font> produce music<font color="#E5E5E5"> you have an enormous</font>

amount of decisions to make<font color="#CCCCCC"> not</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> only</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">about within the music that's one thing</font> but also around the<font color="#E5E5E5"> music about when</font> you're going to do it how long is the best time to make music what's the best time of the day<font color="#CCCCCC"> and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> what</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> are you going</font>

to do to<font color="#E5E5E5"> the track that you're working</font> on<font color="#E5E5E5"> which track</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you're going to work on</font> and<font color="#E5E5E5"> then all of the many micro decisions</font> that you have to do with it with it as well so there's an enormous number of decisions to make<font color="#E5E5E5"> and this increases the</font>

decision note on your<font color="#E5E5E5"> poor prefrontal</font> cortex which is<font color="#CCCCCC"> I'm very bad compared to</font> the rest of your brain<font color="#E5E5E5"> a pretty weak</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">individual and can't take a contact</font> doing all these decisions<font color="#CCCCCC"> at making all</font> these decisions at once<font color="#E5E5E5"> this tends to</font>

lead to procrastination<font color="#CCCCCC"> all of those on</font> made decisions<font color="#CCCCCC"> build-up</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> kind of feeling</font> of<font color="#CCCCCC"> an</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> uncertainty and this leads to</font> procrastination so that's one problem another is that when<font color="#E5E5E5"> you are actually</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">making the music in the studio in front</font>

of<font color="#CCCCCC"> you d aww you often have too many</font> options and having too many options leads to analysis paralysis<font color="#CCCCCC"> as I've</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> said</font> in a couple a couple of days ago maybe even yesterday<font color="#E5E5E5"> the best number of things</font> to choose between<font color="#E5E5E5"> in terms anyway of</font>

your prefrontal<font color="#CCCCCC"> cortexes</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> ability to</font> choose is<font color="#E5E5E5"> too</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">that's because it can only hold as a</font> very small amount of information<font color="#E5E5E5"> at any</font> one time so when you have too many options this

can often lead to<font color="#E5E5E5"> analysis analysis</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">process i talked about this a lot more</font> yesterday<font color="#E5E5E5"> but we often think that the</font> best way to make decisions is<font color="#E5E5E5"> have a</font> gazillion<font color="#E5E5E5"> options while way up all the</font> pros and cons and then come to a

decision that actually has been shown not to be the best way of making great decisions and then<font color="#CCCCCC"> this the third</font> problem is around second-guessing every decision<font color="#CCCCCC"> so</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> this tends to come after so</font> let me just draw this up so before we

before you make music<font color="#E5E5E5"> the problem around</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">engines tends to be and the decision</font> load<font color="#E5E5E5"> it</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> was an enormous decision load</font> during<font color="#E5E5E5"> making music and stupid</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">that's not good</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> now we go during making</font> music

it tends<font color="#E5E5E5"> it is too many options and then</font> after<font color="#E5E5E5"> as you know you start</font> second-guessing yourself so what you thought was great<font color="#CCCCCC"> you think</font> isn't so good<font color="#CCCCCC"> maybe</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you should do this</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">may be ready to go back</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> button and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> all</font>

that kind of thing <font color="#E5E5E5">now obviously in</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this case</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of a second</font> guessing yourself sometimes you will <font color="#E5E5E5">have you will come up with ideas that</font> are better than the ones that you<font color="#E5E5E5"> made</font> when you actually making music<font color="#E5E5E5"> I mean of</font>

course that will happen<font color="#E5E5E5"> but more often</font> than not<font color="#CCCCCC"> I'm sure as you experience</font> yourself<font color="#E5E5E5"> this</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> second guessing blades</font> down a rabbit hole and get you absolutely nowhere<font color="#CCCCCC"> so there you have the</font> problems<font color="#E5E5E5"> on with making decisions and</font>

here's my three-part process not really process but my three-part solution to each of them <font color="#CCCCCC">ok so</font> terms of the decision load<font color="#E5E5E5"> the solution</font> to that is to make decisions as many

decisions as you can about what you're doing<font color="#CCCCCC"> ahead</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of time outside of the</font> studio<font color="#E5E5E5"> so things like when you're going</font> to do it how long<font color="#E5E5E5"> it</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> into work for what</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">you're</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> gonna work on even what you what</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">you're going</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to start working on when</font>

you do the music what the things you have to finish in order to finish this piece of music literally make a checklist of things you are going to work through and work through<font color="#E5E5E5"> this</font> reduces your decision load<font color="#E5E5E5"> thereby</font>

reducing the amount of uncertainty you feel about it<font color="#E5E5E5"> and thereby reducing your</font> procrastination<font color="#E5E5E5"> simple</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the second one is</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">um something</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that might scare a few</font> people but<font color="#CCCCCC"> I used to play this game if</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I</font> got stuck<font color="#CCCCCC"> one of the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> things I used to do</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">is play this game with myself</font> where<font color="#E5E5E5"> where</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I would literally do</font> implement the first thing that came into my head the first thing<font color="#E5E5E5"> idea sound</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I would go</font> right<font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> gonna</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> go with that rather than</font>

going<font color="#CCCCCC"> i could do</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that but then also</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">could do this and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> then less and then and</font> then this<font color="#CCCCCC"> what i did</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> was</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> i just went</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">with the first thing went</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> into my</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> head I</font> did it with DJ<font color="#E5E5E5"> as well</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I used to if</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I</font> was feeling<font color="#E5E5E5"> a little bit uncertain</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">literally when it when the record</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">because</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> i</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> used to play</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> some records</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">first</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and that the record that was</font> playing when when the<font color="#E5E5E5"> it was playing</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">there</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> there would</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> always be a tune that</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">come into my head and rather than</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> going</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">with all the other possibilities</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">I would let you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> go with the first thing</font> that came into my head<font color="#E5E5E5"> and nine times</font> out of<font color="#E5E5E5"> ten in fact probably nearly all</font> of the time when<font color="#CCCCCC"> i did this</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the gig went</font> absolutely brilliantly<font color="#CCCCCC"> it was the second</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">it was</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the it was the analysis paralysis</font> that actually caused the the the problems rather than<font color="#E5E5E5"> and going with my</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">gut was</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the thing that really</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> helped</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so</font> when<font color="#CCCCCC"> you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> in the studio</font> literally

<font color="#CCCCCC">go with the first thing that comes into</font> your head<font color="#E5E5E5"> now this</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> needn't be all like</font> something that you do all of the time <font color="#E5E5E5">but if you're stuck that it absolutely</font> works a treat <font color="#CCCCCC">I mean what's</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the worst that could</font>

happen you can always go back and change <font color="#E5E5E5">it which leads on to the second guessing</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">but if you're stuck that should go with</font> the first thing that goes<font color="#CCCCCC"> in</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> your head</font> for<font color="#CCCCCC"> a while and you're fine just you</font> start<font color="#E5E5E5"> to get moving again even if you're</font>

not stuck<font color="#CCCCCC"> if you are finding you're</font> going really slowly with too many options<font color="#E5E5E5"> just starts to only decide</font> between two things start to try to do that now now when<font color="#CCCCCC"> I talk about</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> any of this stuff</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">i'm not saying this is what you should</font> do all of the time because I'm telling you it's the only way to do it what<font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> saying is that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> be aware of the</font> way that<font color="#CCCCCC"> your</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> eat you are making</font> decisions and that the benefits of going

through too many options might not be helping<font color="#E5E5E5"> too much so then in terms of the</font> after<font color="#CCCCCC"> that's the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> second guessing</font> one of the things i think that people tend to think about when they think about<font color="#E5E5E5"> making decisions and whether</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">they've made the wrong decision is all</font> of making<font color="#CCCCCC"> decisions that as I said</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">yesterday</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> is in essence cutting down all</font> of the other options you could have gone <font color="#E5E5E5">for and second-guessing yourself is</font> about wondering whether those are

options were better than<font color="#E5E5E5"> the one that</font> you took <font color="#E5E5E5">and they might be</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> they might</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> not be but</font> the defining<font color="#CCCCCC"> characteristic of somebody</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">who's who are the people who I've met</font> the music producers<font color="#CCCCCC"> are met</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> in fact all</font>

of<font color="#E5E5E5"> the successful people</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> i've met and</font> successful in pretty much every major <font color="#CCCCCC">i'm talking about happiness i'm</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> talking</font> about money<font color="#CCCCCC"> and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> talking</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> about same</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">pretty much every single one of them</font> makes a decision that could work and

then makes it work rather<font color="#E5E5E5"> than trying to</font> find the best decision before doing anything else <font color="#E5E5E5">so the way to do this is to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> groups</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">that's</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> wrong</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">don't know what's going on with me and</font>

this<font color="#CCCCCC"> whiteboard</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> today anyway is to view</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">every single decision you make</font> not as an end not as a kind of<font color="#E5E5E5"> end point</font> where<font color="#CCCCCC"> you've cut off all of the</font> available options before it<font color="#E5E5E5"> but as a</font> beginning<font color="#E5E5E5"> a beginning which then allows</font>

you to make other decisions there are more decisions to make<font color="#CCCCCC"> it down the line</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">there are more options that it opens up</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">you can make any decision pretty much</font> work for you the only one you cannot make work for you is when you do not

make<font color="#CCCCCC"> the decision</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so dance my three-part</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">analysis paralysis</font> kyoool if you<font color="#E5E5E5"> are simply just use this</font> regularly<font color="#CCCCCC"> i mean all of these things are</font> skills essentially<font color="#CCCCCC"> and if you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> practice</font>

them that you will find that the speed of your creation is exponentially quicker it does there really<font color="#E5E5E5"> isn't an</font> end to this<font color="#CCCCCC"> and as a result you don't</font> get bored of what you're doing<font color="#CCCCCC"> yet get</font> bored of<font color="#CCCCCC"> june</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you finish a lot more</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> plus</font>

as a result because you're finishing<font color="#CCCCCC"> so</font> much more and<font color="#E5E5E5"> you're finishing it so</font> much more quickly<font color="#CCCCCC"> the quality of what</font> you produce<font color="#E5E5E5"> increases also</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> i'm the</font> enjoyment of your process<font color="#E5E5E5"> it becomes</font> much<font color="#CCCCCC"> greater you enjoy it a lot more</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">this</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> is because the decisions each</font> individual decision you make start to not be so painful<font color="#E5E5E5"> and not every decision</font> has to be painful not every decision is the be-all and end-all<font color="#E5E5E5"> is just a decision and when you</font>

may start to practice<font color="#E5E5E5"> these skills and</font> make<font color="#CCCCCC"> bad decisions faster and quicker</font> and more confidently<font color="#CCCCCC"> you actually start</font> to make better decisions believe it or not and now you might might not believe that if you are

currently suffering from a severe case of analysis paralysis<font color="#CCCCCC"> broadly</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> speaking</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">but it is true</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> when you start to make</font> fast<font color="#CCCCCC"> comforted decisions and make them</font> work for you then you make better decisions<font color="#CCCCCC"> so what</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I want you to do now</font>

is tell your friends about what we're doing here in the production game<font color="#CCCCCC"> i was</font> asked just<font color="#CCCCCC"> add a bio email</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> but someone</font> how long am I thinking of<font color="#CCCCCC"> Paragon</font> forward with this production game and a lot of that depends on you<font color="#E5E5E5"> if you are</font>

getting value<font color="#E5E5E5"> for what</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> i'm doing here</font> tell your friends about it because obviously<font color="#CCCCCC"> I'm gonna</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> keep it going</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> but I</font> will keep it<font color="#E5E5E5"> going for much longer</font> the more people<font color="#CCCCCC"> I see that it's</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it's</font> helping so tell your friends about it

<font color="#E5E5E5">tweet about it go on forums tell people</font> about it<font color="#E5E5E5"> where they can sign up to join</font> the production game is the production game.com<font color="#E5E5E5"> and with that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I'll leave it I</font> hope everyone's having a good weekend and<font color="#CCCCCC"> I will see</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you tomorrow with another</font>

one until then keep making that music and onwards and upwards
