The connection between Taylor Swift and your career

I heard an amazing thing about Taylor Swift recently.

It shocked me and I think it’s very relevant to your career.

I heard that to prepare for her current Eras Tour concert series she had an extraordinary regime.

Every day she would get on her treadmill and sing every one of the songs on the Eras song list, while she was exercising.

Every one of them.

How long is the Eras Tour song list?

Three hours and fifteen minutes!

As she put it, “Every day I would run on the treadmill, singing the entire set list out loud. Fast for fast songs, and a jog or a fast walk for slow songs.”

And when I heard that, it explained so much of Taylor Swift’s phenomenal success.

Yes, she’s a superb singer and songwriter, but look at the work ethic!

Have you ever heard of anyone practicing that much? Or even exercise that much?

Every single day!

Now I’m not suggesting that any of us do the same. But we should all have to think about whether we are doing enough training to improve our performance.

Are you regularly training to get better?

Or are you just relying on your natural talent and experience to get you through?

Taylor Swift is one of the greatest pop music stars in history. She just won Time magazine’s Person Of The Year.

Yet she still puts that kind of practice in.

When speaking with Time she said ” I wanted to get it into my bones. I wanted to be so over-rehearsed that I could be silly with the fans, and not lose my train of thought.”


It’s a great reminder to all of us that to be great at any career, we must be great at training and practice.
