For many working musicians, it is once that time of year again. The time of year when a plethora of gigs and performances (often holiday related ones) start pouring in the door. In all the excitement it is easy to get carried away before you realize that you’ve out-done yourself and now have more performances than you can handle. I myself have recently realized that I may have bitten off more than I can chew for this particular season. When caught in a situation such as this, always remember to just pace yourself, but the best way to ensure that this problem doesn’t arise in the first place, is to make sure you know your limits as a performer and when to say enough if enough.
