differentiate between learning and actually finishing music. Youtube can be a great source of information especially in the beginning of your music production journey, but there is just as much bad advice as there is good advice. And often they contradict each other leaving you just more confused that staggers your progress. It is also important to draw a line between preparing to create and actually creating. Doing tons of research, adjusting all your EQ-settings or scrolling endlessly through sample folders versus actually committing to your decisions and moving forward.
