MOYD, "Master of Your Own Destiny", is a personal challenge where you commit to playing the piano for some amount of time every single day. It might be a few hours, it might be a few minutes - it doesn't matter - as long as you sit down and touch those keys!!!

It doesn't matter if it is a grand, an upright, or a digital. Nor does it matter if it is your piano or any other. If you are traveling and you come across an available piano and play for five minutes, it counts! Any piano, anywhere, for any amount of time will do the job.

If you miss a day you must come here and say so. Please report AFTER the fact. We only need to know when you DID miss playing - not that you "might not be able to play".

2018 will be the 14th year of MOYD on ABF.

MOYD RULES

1. Participating in MOYD requires you to sit on the piano bench and play something at least once daily. That's it. There is no minimum amount of time required. Five minutes counts... but more is better. Simply get to the piano everyday, let it become a habit, and see what good things happen to your piano skills.

2. If you are away from home (for business, or for personal reasons) , you don't have to practice/play that day. You go to the 'Excused list".

3. If you are sick, you don't have to practice/play. You go to the 'Excused list".

4. If you are at home, and you are not sick and you miss a day, you have to come here and tell us the sad story of what kept you from playing. Then you go to the "Back on the Wagon" list.

5. You may start late - however no new participants are accepted after September 30th. This is a hard deadline in fairness to everyone who has participated all year.

6. Everyone who has reported being away, being sick, falling off and getting back on the wagon, or who signs up late has the right to put the MOYD 2018 badge in their signatures on 31 December 2018.

HOW TO JOIN

Simply reply to this thread declaring your enthusiastic willingness to join in and be committed to the plan! I will check in regularly and update this first page with the information you provide.

Signature pictures will be offered to those who are 2018 MOYD winners. Below you will find the 2017 Siggies, for those who participated in 2017.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADDING IMAGES TO YOUR SIGNATURE:
1. Place your cursor on the desired icon,
2. right click,
3. go to properties,
4. copy the Url, or copy image address
5. go to your profile page signature box,
6. place cursor,
7. click on "enter an image" paste. ( add [img] before the address and [/img] after. The badge address should read [ img]http://forum.pianoworld.com//gallery/42/medium/9345.png[/img], without the space after the first bracket).
8. save changes

I'm going to give this a whirl again. The one and only time (about 2 years ago) I attempted this I epically failed at it. I'm hoping this time around I won't.

Hello,
I can't get the MOYD2017 in my signature! I'm on a mac computer, and I wonder if that is part of the problem? Your directions are clear, but I don't seem to have the options that you are describing. Any ideas?

Thanks!

What you should paste in your profile signature is:

[ img]http://forum.pianoworld.com//gallery/42/medium/9345.png[/img]

Just delete the space after the first bracket, and it should work. Hope this helps!

Weird. I had no luck with my new Windows 10 PC uploading the logo to my profile. Right clicking on the appropriate logo did not bring up “properties”. And without the link to the logo there was no way to transfer it. Of course, I had already deleted last year’s logo. Guess I will go without. I know i’ve completed the challenge for a few years running. That’s all that matters. Anyone with Windows 10 figure out how to transfer a logo to their profile?

I don't have Windows 10, but clicking on the logo did not bring up properties for me, either.

What I did was right click on the logo and hit "copy image address." Then I went to "edit profile," scrolled down to the signature box, and right clicked to add the image address. I needed to add [img] before the copied address and and [/img] at the end. That did the trick.

Happy New Year, everyone! I have added the following to the list:
alans
my58vw
PatrickBl
Morodiene

Stubbie- I added "copy image address" to the instructions, as well as as instructions to add the [img] and [/img]. The website has changed and the insert image function is only available on the full editor. Hopefully that will help others figure out how to insert the badge. Thanks for pointing it out.

A lack of talent does not stop you from learning piano. It just takes longer and you have to work harder.

My computer must be really weird because I can "copy" but not "copy the image address". There doesn't seem to be any way on my computer to see the address of the badge to paste it into my profile. I am really not computer savvy I guess.

When you move your cursor over the image and click using the "right" button, what list of options do you see?

(I am using Windows 7. I'm not computer savvy either, but I manage to muddle my way through most of the time. smile )

Hi. For those struggling with Windows 10 to copy the image address, when you right click, from the popup menu pick "Copy Image location", then follow to the letter the rest of the instructions by SwissMS and you'll get there. smile

Hi there,

Tuesday 9 january I worked the whole day and went home about 23h.....so no opportunity to play......argh......long time ago that I had day like this.
Mea culpa........No piano this day......have to say sorry😩😩

Today, 10 january also the whole day from home......BUT......I had a one hour break in one of the buildings of my college, I work for........and yes there was a Yamaha upright.....played for one hour and a group of colleagues was listening and were enthousiastic....some of them did not know I play piano, for them a big surprise.....😀😀......a better piano-day.

Best regards,
Johan B

Hi,

Please sign me up for 2018. Last year was successful for me, not a lot of days missed for travel or illness. Even for travel, it is nice that the MSP airport has a piano...

Hello SwissMS,
Happy New Year everybody!
I didn't post here around December end - January beginning, but I did play Piano a bit ("5 minutes count" - right?) and hope to keep going this year as well. Please add me to the list smile

I have to have to do this already, but I must apologize for missing practice on January 13th and 14th. I spent the weekend working on renovations to my house and by the time we stopped for the day I was too tired to do anything.

Skullie, I will put you back on the wagon January 15. Renovations are always exhausting, but I bet the result will be great!

salzdt - Welcome to MOYD! All you do is report here when you are unable to play due to illness or travel and I will record your excused days, For days that you do not play, but you could have, you also report here and I will put you on the Back on the Wagon list. You can play as little as five minutes on a day, and it counts.

fofig- I will add Jan 17-19 to your list. Have a good trip and be on the lookout for lonely pianos waiting to be played!

I don't think I could be excused for yesterday. I'm working on my own music recordings and was recording bass guitar yesterday and ran into some problems that I needed to fix and didn't touch the keyboard. The day before I had a sinus headache when I woke up and didn't do anything that night before work except stare at YouTube.

*sigh*

Hello,

Please add me to the excused list for 23 Jan to 3 Feb. A south sea island cruise during which much food and drink was consumed, but very little piano was played.
Thanks SwissMS.

Please excuse me for January 30th. I had an outpatient procedure that required anesthetic. I have had this type of IV anesthesia before and had been fine to practice later in the day . Well it was at a different hospital and because I have allergies they decided to put Benadryl in too without telling me. I never take Benadryl because it really knocks me out and when combined with the IV anesthesia I was not able to function for 21 hours so no practice that day.

So I liked the MYOD concept, but had decided not to be an active participant. That said, I play everyday.....EVERY day. For me, it's therapy. It's the thing that keeps me centered.. Before piano, it was guitar, or other instruments. Either way, it was music, everyday. Some days don't go well.....perhaps to many distractions or whatnot, but I still go through the motions. Well, I just went on vacation. Usually, If I go away, I will bring at least a ukulele so I can play something. This time I did not (at my wife's behest). The week was fine.....I didn't have the "withdrawals" I expected to have. I barely even thought about it while I was away. But the most wonderful thing happened upon my return. Not that I was feeling "burned out" or stale, but I have had a rejuvenation, a resurgence of musical passion that completely caught me off guard. I'm playing better than before I left. Things are coming to me faster and easier. I'm just very pleased with what a week off has done for me.....

that is all


Currently working on:
Asturia (Leyenda) - Isaac Albeniz
Mia and Sabastian's Theme - Kyle Landry arrangement
also working on some vocal training

I have to go on the excused list for 14, 15, 16 March - I've been hit with an inner ear problem and it really threw me for a loop with vertigo and nausea.

I saw the dr today and meds are already kicking in - I feel sure I'll play tomorrow!

Please excuse me from March 3rd to March 5th. I was dog sitting at my daughters house and fell on the stairs. I had x rays and fortunately nothing is broken but I was in too much pain to practice. The sciatic nerve is evidently inflamed and for the first couple of days it hurt to move anything. I am back to practicing with my left hand due to the tendinitis in my right hand. I am seeing a physical therapist for that next week.

I have to be excused for Sunday 18 March as well. I tried playing on Saturday and did a bit, but it was not very successful. Yesterday I didn't even try. I'm not as bad as the first few days, but the dizziness is still there. The dr said it wouldn't go away overnight. Sadly - he was right.

I had exactly the same problem a couple of years ago. It was terrifying, but fortunately it went away quickly and hasn’t come back.

Wishing you a full and speedy recovery!

Please put me in the excused list for March 14-18 and 20. I had pain in both hands (and several other body parts, actually) and could hardly handling objects. My doctor prescribed me anti-inflammatory and now it's better. I'm waiting for the blood exams results, also.

Hi,
I missed practice at the piano on Friday, March 23rd.

The day before, Thursday, I had put in extra hours at work & performed an act of kindness by clearing our elderly neighbour's driveway of snow & ice that I overslept Friday and didn't have my usual before work practice session. Then after work, we had choir practice for Palm Sunday service, Good Friday and Easter. I got home after 10pm and what energy I had left was to have a cup of tea followed by falling asleep on the sofa. 😴

I resumed practice yesterday, Saturday, 3/24. Thank you!

I had to miss yesterday (Sunday 3/25) due to all-day, out-of-town business meetings and a long trip home. I was able to practice at the hotel on the GO Piano some on Friday and Saturday, but Sunday just wasn't feasible.

Back at it today!

Just a heads up, I'll be absent 3/30 through 4/6. On the east coast visiting family. There is really old piano at my parent's place, but it is so out of tune, the sustain pedal is broken, keys not working, etc. It just sits in the basement and collects dust/mold. I played on it for about 60 seconds ... laugh

No excuse as far as I am concerned. (Good thing I don't make the rules.). JoBert and Gombessa would have taken it apart, fixed the pedal, regulated it, and had it in tune in no time! Have a good trip! Let's do lunch when you get back.

Can I be excused for yesterday? I strained my wrist working outside. Hopefully it'll feel better by the time I get home today so I can be back at the keys this evening.

Piano bird is a certain type of Anhinga in Costa Rica which, when it opens its wings, looks like a piano! Here’s a link that shows it

I will need a couple of days reprieve next week as I get my left hip replaced on Monday. I have some easy technical exercises to do for when I don’t feel up to much practicing. I hope only to miss the days i’m In the hospital.

Well, it IS pretty major! But it doesn’t affect my upper body. So, in theory, I should be able to sit at the piano and do something!

Good luck dynamobt!
I know it's your lower body, but it is major surgery. Rest up all you need and don't rush back too soon.

And I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that it is SO important to be diligent about doing the PT exercises they will give you to do. Even more important than your piano practice, and that's saying a lot smile smile

Hello,
Please excuse me for 21 March to 11 April. I went on a cruise where I heard a lot of good music, but didn't play a note. (BTW, I like that cruise ships are sticking with live bands rather than the "karaoke" approach).
Thanks.

Patrick.

May I be excused for April 10? I had to work until really late, so I had to go directly to the theatre show I booked last September and arrived late (and much tired) at home.
For pure luck I had already put the ticket in my backpack!

Dear Everyone on MOYD and especially SwissMS for managing it -

I haven't joined, mainly because, especially at the beginning of my return to piano, I would have been the source of way more than my fair share of "please excuse me" and "back on the wagon" notices - but I did want to say thank you to all of you for letting me be a lurker on the thread and for giving me the ongoing inspiration to finish off a hard day with even 5 minutes at the piano. It really works, and in an interesting way, being motivated to do "just 5 minutes" has also led to better practice habits - "just 5 minutes" has evolved from "just 5 minutes, play through with mistakes" to "just 5 minutes, pick one spot and untangle it".

I can't claim to be 100% following the above, but I'm doing better, and thank you all for helping me make that happen!

Please excuse me for April the 26th and 27th. I was massively stressed out and distracted by my dissertation deadline at Uni and, as much as I kept telling myself that I would get to the piano 'later', I'm afraid it just didn't happen on those days. Back at it today though. On the plus side, my dissertation was submitted in time. smile

You guys are so good at checking in! I joined last year, but for some reason felt the stress of checking in when I didn't play and the dishonesty if I didn't report it too much. Turns out seldom (actually never) does a day go by when I don't spend at least an hour at the piano, unless obligations away from home keep me from wake to sleep time, but nonetheless I haven't participated formally this year. Keep it up!

I missed 4/9 due to having company and the hubbub prevented me from practicing. But I made up for it the next day. 😎

Ugh. I missed Thursday May 3. I feel so guilty. But 90° in the Mid-Atlantic and I came home to a house 90° inside too. I got my playing in today in the morning before the heat ramped up again. Sure hope my a/c guy gets here tomorrow.

SwissMS,

New to PW and have been following Alfreds Beginner threads.

If you will, please add my name to MOYD 2018. I think this is a very inspirational way to motivate people to practice and I want to be part of it.

Hi,
I missed practice on Sunday, May 6th. Overwhelmed with allergies, yard work & extra choir practice for upcoming 40th anniversary parish celebration.

I resumed practice the following day, May 7th.

Happy Mother's Day to the mom's on Piano World.
I play in remembrance of my mom, Angelina.

Hello! I need to be excused for Sunday 20 May. I had to travel for work - left home very early and was away overnight.
I was doing a wine tasting event in Vicenza, which was pretty neat. There was a piano in the restaurant where we had dinner afterwards, but it was all closed up and I didn't dare ask to give it a try. I was home in time to play on Monday , so .. just one day off.

Thank you!

Please excuse me for yesterday, May 31. I had an extra long day at work, full of a dress rehearsal and performance. I had to leave my house in the morning before my kids woke up, and didn't return until after they were back asleep.

It's been a crazy few weeks. I missed some days due to travel, some to being out of the house from early morning to late at night, and some from just having lost my focus due to everything that was going on.
So please put me back on the wagon from Sunday 3 June

PLease excuse me for today.
We got up very early to catch a steam train, went up to the lake and island hopped and then had dinner out. By the time we got home I was too tired to play.

A lovely long relaxing day! ... but no piano!

Please excuse me for June 6th and 7th as I was away at a convention in the Adirondacks. We had beautiful weather the whole weekend. I was able to practice Sunday night when I got home.

Please excuse me for May 24-29, as I was traveling and had no access to a piano.
