Doable ideas 💭
Write down 3 things you are grateful for today.
Nothing is too big or too small 🙂
I’ll go first:
- my morning brew ☕️
- day off to recharge 🔋
- supportive social circle 👯♀️
What values and principles are you practising this week?
Meditation is intermittent fasting for the mind. Too much sugar leads to a heavy body, and too many distractions lead to a heavy mind. Time spent undistracted and alone, in self-examination, journaling, meditation, resolves the unresolved and takes us from mentally fat to fit.

Experiments/Projects for May 🔬
🌱 Grow without social media. Based on the Q1 statistics and video editing outsourcing experiment I had last month, I decided to stop creating short videos for my business – probably until June. Previous success told me I’m better off attracting potential clients from Google search and providing values from . So this month I’m going to double down my effort on that, and also on promoting my to attract leads.
Ideas Worth Pondering 🧠
How sustainable is your career?
How much risk can you tolerate in your career/industry?
No, I’m not talking about the possibility of being replaced by AI.
It’s more like a cost-and-benefit analysis: how much does your work value, how your career affects your emotional health, professional development etc.
Last week my sky-rocketed anxiety at work inspired me to ask AI to list the top 10 risks of being a music therapist for 5 years. Here’s what I got:
Top 10 Risks of Being a Music Therapist for Over 5 Years:
- Compassion fatigue and burnout
- Difficulties finding full-time employment
- Limited career advancement opportunities
- Difficulty building a consistent client base
- Limited insurance coverage for music therapy services
- Challenges in measuring and demonstrating the effectiveness of music therapy
- Dependence on referrals from other healthcare professionals
- Limited research funding and opportunities
- Limited recognition and understanding of music therapy as a profession
- Inconsistent regulation and licensure across states and countries
I agree on #1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9. That is pretty legit huh?
That said, who can really predict the trajectory of the healthcare industry? I personally look forward to making music therapist a household name in the next 5 years, and hopefully the health policies and insurances will (finally) recognise the tremendous effects music therapy can bring to overall wellbeing.
Bottom line: asking AI for career advice might not be the wisest thing to do. Talk to your colleagues, friends and industry leaders to gather more information and opinions before you make any huge decision. 😉
