Things aren’t as hard to master as you think.
How long does it take to master a skill?
If we’re being honest, mastery will take years of toil.
There will be frustration. There will be giving up and starting again before you even begin to scratch the surface.
Then and maybe even then you might only ever be a journeyman.
Ask yourself; do you need to get to be at that level?
How good do you really have to be?
Do you need to be a master?
It’s easy to begin.
Here’s a secret the masters don’t want you knowing. Whether it’s piano, copywriting, programming even learning to drive.
It doesn’t take that long to get up to average.
All it takes is one hour every day for four months.
Let’s do the math, that’s 120 hours.
You can do one hour a day, can’t you? If you’re sitting there saying you don’t have the time, be honest.
What can you cut out?
Really, how much are you missing out on by devoting an hour to a new skill that has the potential to make you some money?
Get started now, and you’ll be glad you did.
Now here’s the thing. Starting is easy. A new project is hands down one of the most joy-filled things you could ever embark on.
What you have to understand and this is the harsh, brutal truth. A truth you don’t want to accept is you have to be consistent.
Being consistent is the hardest part.
Doing an hour every day, when you think about it sounds easy, but the reality is your mind is going to do everything it can to stop you.
That’s what you have to push through.
Being consistent is more important than being good.
At the end of the day, people prefer someone average and consistent.
They want someone average but reliable over someone brilliant but a risk.
The question you have to ask yourself, do you want to be reliable?
If you do, then you do not give up as soon as you get bored.
If anything, that is when you have to force yourself to sit down and do the work.
If you do, you have to be aware of the first person you have to be reliable to is yourself.
How do you do that?
You do that by putting in one hour every day.
