Yesterday, I ponied up the balance due on my January narration class at Voicetrax. When I looked at the invoice amount, I had to remind myself that I’m making an investment in my future.

I was reminding myself of that very thing this morning, as I was working through my daily reads.

It’s easy to find excuses not to put in the time to pull copy, analyze it, establish my settings, circumstances, and motivations, run a take, listen to it critically, and run it again to fix the things I missed the first time through. It’s work. It’s time-consuming. On days when the reads don’t flow, and I really struggle to come up with a competitive-sounding take, it’s humbling and frustrating.

But it’s an investment.

And if I don’t make that investment every day, I’ll never get where I want to go.
