Check out a few “do’s and don’ts below” and visit Glamour for the full list.
DO have a clear vision for what you want to do.
“I wanted to take my time with [my new album] and show people I was capable of making something people could really relate to. Jay Z has always been a role model because he inspires people [to believe] they can go from selling drugs to being one of the most celebrated businessmen of our time. That’s what I want to do for young girls, to say, ‘It doesn’t matter where you started in your life. You too can become a mogul and anything you want to be.'”
DON’T obsess over perfection.
“When I was recording [my song] ‘Chi-Raq,’ I went into the recording booth and I just did it in this really low, monotone voice, my chains making noise on the mike. I was just laying it down as a reference. Then I went back in and tried to make it perfect. And you know what? I went back to the original take. Give yourself some room to make a mistake and have fun. The less pressure I put on myself, the more I leave myself open for magical moments.”
