Sticking With My Guitar
By: Alexandra Arriola
Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you'll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you're gonna be rewarded.
- Jimi Hendrix

My Patterns Of My Past
Good things to have
Choices Of Schools
I gave up before I started
Breaking From My Bad Patterns Of The Past
I will-
practice more
become more proactive in achieving my goals
(Also known as my Pathfinder Project)
I've always admired musicians. But the guitarists were the ones that really caught my eye.
Then I thought....
Why not try it out for myself?
So I decided to learn how to play the guitar.
And so I made it a goal to learn how to play ten songs in four years.
Phase One
Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
- Tony Robbins
Setting A Goal
Now I need to set a goal to hold myself to.

My Reflections
I let myself get distracted and forget to go back
I talk about it with my dad
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
- Benjamin Franklin
"Confront the difficult while it is still easy; accomplish the great task by a series of small acts."
- Tao Te Ching
My Hero and Inspiration
Kirk Hammet
My Winner's Profile
I need to be more determined to practice so I can get better.
" 'Tis not enough to help the feeble up, but to support them after."
- William Shakespeare

look at different guitars
look at music sheet books
visiting music stores
watch other people play guitar

If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
- Michael Jordan
My Discrepancies
Learning the "guitar language"
I have a list of terms I need to look at.
I can study the list I found online.
I will quiz myself to make sure I remember them.
Watching Youtube videos of people playing guitar
I've watched videos, but I haven't tried playing along.
I can watch more videos and try to play along while I watch.
I will try to play along the first time I watch the video.
What I need to do
What I am doing now
How I will improve
Practicing by playing Rocksmith
I've practiced a lot for about an hour.
I can practice more and play other games less.
I will continue to practice and get better scores on new songs.
Going to music stores and talking to people
I haven't gone to a music store and talk to people there yet.
I can visit some stores and look for good people to talk to.
I will go to music stores regularly and talk to people as often as I can.
My Plan
Starting From The End
6-1-18 I accomplish my goal completely.
1-3-18 I master my 9th song on Rocksmith.
5-7-17 I master my 7th and 8th song on Rocksmith.
9-4-16 I master my 5th and 6th song on Rocksmith.
1-6-16 I master my 4th song on Rocksmith.
6-5-15 I master my 2nd and 3rd song on Rocksmith.
9-2-14 I master my 1st song on Rocksmith.

My Declarations
I declare to-
my family
my friends
my teacher (Mrs.Mann)
That you can count on me to-
practice an hour and a half every week
watch more Youtube videos and play along with them
and learn at least 7 new terms from the list of terms I have each week
My First Baby Step
2-1-14 Date to accomplish baby step
Baby step- To get a 50% mastery on a song
To accomplish my baby step, I need to practice more.
I don't think I need to re-evaluate my plan because I expected it to be hard and I gave myself plenty of time accomplish my goal.
"If you just work at it, you'll be surprised at what you can accomplish."
