Obviously Obvious Friday (Jan 22, 2016)

I’m gonna tell ya some things you already know.  Nothing new, just stuff you’ve heard before.

: If you want to get really, really good at something, you have to do it every day, even if it’s just for five minutes a day.  You wanna be a better butcher, baker, candlestick maker, hone your craft by butchering, or baking, or makin’ them sticks every…single…day.

Every day; there’s no other way.

If it’s writing, spend a few minutes or more, every day, puttin’ pen to paper or droppin’ digits on that screen.

Cooking?  Create a new dish, new to you, or new to the world, every day.

Wanna improve some physical or mental skill?  Push that weight, work that brain, today, tomorrow, and the next day too.

Music?  Play on playa!

Key points–

  1. You’ll need to be willing to sacrifice other stuff in order focus on the main stuff
  2. That thing you want to master needs to be something you enjoy doing even when it’s boring, or tiring, or you just don’t wanna do it
  3. It must be something that you can improve at

There ya go.   TGIOF.

About malcolm2030

I started my formal study of a traditional Japanese martial art during my freshman year in college in late 1990 and in early 2017, I took a leap of faith and have been teaching traditional martial arts and fitness on a full-time basis. I enjoy researching and exploring topics ranging from health and fitness, brain science and quantum physics, to relational dynamics, energy, and optimum living. I believe that we all should be daily evolving toward our true potential; while there will be times when we fall back, or get pushed back, or knocked down, the sum of our steps over a given period of time should be forward.
