Some of my best friends are awesome mentors to me and have IQ's of 184 and produce massive growing, continuous tangible value with laser-like-focus.
When they teach me something like using a mindmap tool to create a set of qualities and skills we want in the staff we want to hire, I take it all in. I'm rapt with attention, mostly silent, apply focused situational awareness and common sense to turn it into gold.
Steve talked a lot about power in this post and I haven't found any power tool as useful as this, maybe some would find as useful as I did in execution.
This experiment holds so much promise, I can't wait to see what kind of discoveries in the TLP paradigm it'll bring

I'm enjoying your music posts, and like how you've just jumped in & started posting stuff online right away. I write music myself, but have held back from sharing it - I need to get over that.
I have the Dance Music Manual & it's a great book. If you're interested in learning more theory (which I recommend - it gives you so much more flexibility), you might like 'Music Theory For Computer Musicians' by Michael Hewitt. The two sequels on composition and harmony are also worth checking out.

As someone who loves and plays music, I find it very refreshing to read about someone starting to make music. It's both inspiring and thought-provoking. Also, Steve's ability to correctly perceive his own strengths and weaknesses in developed musical ability will help him learn at a very quick rate. This is refreshing to see because I feel many people get hung up at a certain point in their musical development (myself included) because of a blockage to develop their current musical weaknesses.
Also, Steve, whom I presume is usually an early-riser, found that there is something about making music late at night that is special. I have wondered about this for some time. Currently, I believe different types of music can be created at different times. Also, as long as you feel fresh and not tired, the longer you are awake, the more your musical brain feels warmed up.
I wrote a small article about practicing music with truth, love and power, and I look forward to reading more about Steve's ideas on the truth, love and power in music. Whenever I think of truth, love and power in music, I am reminded of John Coltrane. His later work seemed to embody these ideas.

What social support?
I liked what you said about applying power and love to this and how the same applies to other stuff.
The trade off for writing music (for me as well as other artistic pursuits) being late-night activities, is that sometimes I'm up long enough to catch the sunrise, despite not being an "early riser".
