How to excel at a skill?

What do you need to excel at a skill?

Wondering what it could be?

Too many people believe that they must make revolutionary changes in how they think, feel, and behave to excel at a skill.

That’s not true.

To excel at a skill, you need to make a small change but on a consistent basis.

To make a small change on a consistent basis, you need intentional focus and undivided attention to the task at hand.

(BTW, Intentional Focus and Undivided Attention are the focus keywords I’ve given to my team this year.)

You need small yet consistent steps toward the apex of the skill-excellence.

Small is easy to start. Small is easy to measure. Small is easy to retrospect. Small is easy to correct.

Small is simple. Simple gets done, fast!

If you improve your Photoshop skills by 1% each day for the next six weeks, you will see a 40% improvement in your Photoshop skills.

40% is a huge improvement, isn’t it?

It’s true for any other area of your life: health; cooking; coding; public speaking … or any other area. You can excel at almost any skill you can think of.

Getting better by just 1% does not require you to change how they think, feel, and behave.

That’s less scary too.

So now you’re not scared; who’s stopping you from improving at any skill you want in about six weeks?

Any skill?
