MAKE IT COUNT will be my Mantra for 2018

I will have a lot of “performance” related moments this year, and before each, I will be telling myself to “make it count”! Some of these moments will be very small, like playing through a piano piece without mistake during practice at home, or on a public piano. However, some will be big and important, like the higher than annual average number of big consequence decisions I expect to make this year.

I picked MAKE IT COUNT over IT’S SHOW TIME because some of these bigger moments will be serious in a rational way to finalize something, rather than an emotional perk up before a “performance” to come. However, I imagine there’ll be lots of moments where I’ll start out with IT’S SHOW TIME, followed by MAKE IT COUNT, as a double mantra.
