The Complicated Relationship Of Numbers And Art

December 7, 2019
If you’ve been on social media this past week, you may have noticed artists and musicians sharing screenshots of what Spotify calls their “year-in-review.” (It essentially gives an artist analytics on number of streams of each song or album and where in the world people are listening to their music. 
 
I’ve been loving seeing artist friends say thank you to everyone listening to their music and talk about how encouraged they are to see those numbers grow but then I got to thinking…
 
What happens when you look at the numbers… and it’s not what you expected? What happens when less people come out to your show than you were hoping? What happens when less people are reading your new blog than you had expected by now? What happens when you look at the numbers… and are discouraged? 
 
I’ve got the morning off in a hotel room, downtown Omaha Nebraska, and I want to share four questions that I ask myself whenever I’m discouraged by the numbers that I believe will help you if you ever find yourself in that situation.
