Wanting to BE good at something gets in the way of BECOMING good at something

Here is a short examination of a pitfall when learning any new skill. With a few easy exercises in your journal and a couple of useful resources you will be better prepared to deal with this common trap.

Our culture mostly values having skills while it mostly ignores the process of learning skills. The slow, repetitive, and often painful learning process of the beginner  is not as sexy as the virtuostic performance of the master.

To become great at anything you most learn to love the slow, repetitive, practice. You must learn to reframe the nervousness, the discomfort, and the uncertainty as excitement, challenge, and opportunity.

Stop Procrastinating!

I was so excited to share these two resources that I had to make a video about it right away. If they can help me with my procrastination and motivation issues I think they can help you too! Keep them on hand. More energy than coffee.

New videos every Friday, at the least. Depending on how much I procrastinate.
