In This Progress Party
00:00 – What to Expect – Tony explains how the Progress Party works, why it’s important, and what to expect on today’s live workshop.
02:30 – Using the 90-Day Progress Journal – Ninety days provides the perfect timeline for setting tangible goals and a focused trajectory for growth in your playing ability. It’s just a long enough to make a real impact but short enough that planning can be concrete and actionable.
08:30 – What’s the WOGE – The Wheel of Guitar Enjoyment (WOGE) is a helpful visual aid to see how the past 90 days have gone for your guitar journey.
18:08 – Establishing Your 90-Day Goal – Based on how the last three months went, what goal will you commit to for the next three months? This can be technique based (mastering the F chord or barre chords) or outcome based (maybe you want to play your first song in front of other people or learn three new full songs), or perhaps its routine based (maybe you want to average three days per week of playing for ten minutes). Share your goal in the comments below.
25:18 – What’s Your Guitar Ritual – Now that you know your goal, what’s the best guitar routine that will help you reach that goal? Maybe you bit off more than you could chew in the last three months so you want to adjust and tweak your routine to be more realistic. Maybe you were able to average three days per week and now you want to strive for five days per week. Here’s the Guitar Routine format: How many times per week will you play guitar? What time of day will you play? And where will you play?
32:53 – Planning for Obstacles – You know what they say: the best offense is a good defense. In this section, you’ll learn how to plan for obstacles in your guitar journey and how to navigate setbacks with the proper mindset that will encourage you to keep playing.
36:38 – Take the Pledge – I pledge to play guitar for ten minutes per day for the next 90 days. I will stick to the TAC Method playing schedule without judging myself for getting frustrated, missing a few days, or feeling behind where I think I should be. When I’m in doubt or unsure, I’ll remind myself that it’s Consistency that will make me better. I’ll stay consistent by committing to the Tiny Habit of playing for 10 minutes every day. I can always find negative things if I look for them, so instead, I will find something positive to Celebrate each day, no matter how small.
41:32 – Tony’s 90-Day Goal – I’ll take some time to share with you my 90-day guitar goal. I’ll also walk you through some setbacks that I am planning for and how I can overcome those should they arrise.
54:54 – Member Goal Shares – We’ll highlight some great goals coming from the TAC Family and hear how other members are using the 90-Day Guitar Goal framework to continue their guitar journeys.
01:17:00 – TAC News – Find out what’s new with TAC and learn about anything that Tony has in the works as it relates to TAC features, programs, or events.
01:25:30 – Overcoming Setbacks – This is a very special segment where Tony calls for volunteers to share setbacks and challenges they faced in the last 90 days and how they overcame the adversity. This is a dose of inspiration that will fuel your next three months of guitar.
What is the 90-Day Progress Party?
These Progress Parties happen at 11am Mountain Time on the first Wednesday of these months:
Why should you show up?
In the workshop, Tony will guide you through reflecting on your wins from the last 90 days and help you create your next 90-day goal. This is a major bonus to your TAC membership that’s designed to help you re-focus and get inspired by success stories from your fellow TAC Family – and share your own wins! You’ll also get the first look at TAC news and updates.
A replay will be available within a day or two of the live workshop, just click the “Progress Party Replays” link on the right of the Acoustic Tuesday show section of the website.
And here’s a tip! During the breakout session Tony will have a special discussion so even if you attended live you may want to view the replay to see what he discussed!
We hope to see you at the next live Progress Party!
