How to Be Good at Something | February 18, 2016

Talents are not as innate as some people think. Almost any skill can be learned. It takes an immense amount of interest and practice in order to become a master of something. Some people think it’s mysterious to be able to do something but it’s really not. Talent is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration—I’m paraphrasing Edison. The people who are good at certain things just have a lot of practice.

If you want to be good at something, you have to get off your phone. Whether it’s cooking or singing or writing, you won’t know how to do something unless you start doing them. To be good at something, it starts with actually picking up the tool and actually doing something.

It starts with a hobby—the adult version of playing without worrying about the consequences. Whether it’s writing or singing painting or needlework or anything else, people need to get interested in something before they actually start playing. Keep in mind that things are a lot harder to learn as an adult than when we were children—we no longer practice learning new skills.

Eventually, people learn their skills. If you’re a horrible singer, you’ll become good at it if you keep on practicing and try to learn the technique. It takes time but people learn eventually. Then, people become good at what they do and then they could sell them or give them away if they choose. You have to practice over and over in order to be good at whatever it is you want to learn. It does take time but if you practice that particular skill an hour a day, you’ll become good at whatever it is you’re interested in.

To be good at something, you don’t need to be born with talent for that particular skill. Most people could learn through practice. The more you practice, the more you’ll improve. It’s going to take a few years but eventually, you’ll be good at that particular activity that people would believe you’re born with that skill.
