Jeff Strong on How I Sustain My Passion in My Practice

I’ve been playing for people with neurological disorders for 25 years and everyday I still wake up passionate about the work I do. It wasn’t always this way. As I was building my business, I received a lot of advice to delegate and be a manager. I tried this and quickly found myself losing interest. So, I resumed doing the one task that I loved: customer support.

If you’ve ever called or emailed us, chances are you talked to (or heard from) me. I answer the phone because I love talking to clients, prospective clients, and providers. This is what gets me up in the morning; yet this is what the business “experts” told me I shouldn’t be doing. The secret is that this task gives me joy, and my clients can sense my passion for the work and their well-being.

My advice: Focus on the aspects of your work you love, even if they are the “lowly” tasks that most people hire out.

Optimize Your Day with the Right Music

Music is an important part of our lives.

What if we choose the music we listen to more intentionally, with specific goals in mind? Instead of choosing music out of habit or as background filler, music can be played strategically to enhance brain function.

In this video I describe how I choose music throughout the day to support the activities I do. For example, slow, repetitive patterns enhance my meditations; novel, complex music focuses my mind; alpha tempos with mild variability calm me; and sparse, slowly evolving tones empty my mind and prepare me for sleep.

Find out how you can optimize your day by choosing the best music for you.
