“You have to make a consistent practice out of mastering skillets.
What does that mean?
I mean daily exposure and immersion into what it is you’re trying to learn.
If you’re going to try and learn piano you aren’t going to learn it by going to piano lessons once a month. If you want to learn English you aren’t going to learn it by talking to somebody who speaks English once a month or even once a week. It has to be more than that.
If you want to learn something you have to deeply immerse in it over a long period of time. It can’t be a weekend event or seminar. It can’t be a one time course. It has to be something you get into.
If you don’t feel like you can take some time every day to learn and grow then you’re mismanaging your life… and somebody has to say that to you.
If you’re not taking some time everyday to learn something, I don’t know that you’re ever going to develop mastery in anything. And, if you don’t ever develop some form, some level of mastery in something, you’ll never become the most influential in what you do or the highest paid in what you do or really have a connection to it where it feels like it’s art and it’s part of you.
So you have to practice something constantly, at some level everyday.”
