I recently learned about a study that tested the best way to become proficient at a task. They did this by looking at how two groups of people learned to make clay pots. In one corner you have the ‘studiers’ who were asked to spend the majority of their allotted time researching best practices, new techniques, etc. In the other corner you have the ‘doers’ who were asked to spend their entire allotted time making pots and learning on the go.
I’m not going to mince words here: the unwavering belief you have in 'self-evident truths' is a complete trap.
With a list of 23 goals (and counting) for 2018, I’ve got achievement on the brain. So today, I’m going to walk you through how to achieve anything and everything you want...as long as it’s physically possible.
If I had a dollar for every time a friend said to me: “I’m really not sure what I should do next with my career. All I know is that I’m not happy now...I think I should go back to school”, I would be a VERY rich woman.
I don’t know what you’re relationship with failure has been. But for me, it has always been a brutal, unforgiving mistress. I was plagued with an older sibling who is instantly great at everything she does.
So, if you know anything about me, you know I have plans. BIG plans. My goal is to become a successful serial entrepreneur. And, before you start dramatically rolling your eyes and thinking: “ok, so she’s some kind of lady start up bro? Is she going to start telling us about synergy now…or like, swiping money from orphans with her corporate depravity?” know that I’m not a Wolf of Wall Street wannabe.
