Can you master any skill you want?

Can you master any skill you want?

I’ve always searched for the perfect and most efficient way to finish all my goals and become good at anything I wanted. But I’ve always struggled to improve what I was already doing .

I reached high levels of consistency and repetition. But my work was stagnant . I kept making the same mistakes . And I was stuck in a pattern with little to no improvement.

But I had to change to succeed at my side hustle. And it all started with the 3 keys of mastery .

The 3 Keys of Mastering Any Skill

The 3 Keys of Mastering Any Skill

If you want to master any skill, you need three things:

  • a lot of consistency
  • to learn from your failures
  • and to replicate your successes.

And having one or two of them is not enough.

What if you don't follow the 3 keys?

What if you don't follow the 3 keys?

  • If you are consistent, you will always produce something. But does it matter if nobody wants to see it?
  • If you learn from your failures, you will improve your craft. But will anybody follow you for one piece of work a year ? Someone might, but nobody likes inconsistent people.
  • While if you only replicate successes, you limit your reach and never evolve. People will get bored , and you will eventually lose your audience.

How to Master Any Skill You Want

How to Master Any Skill You Want

Experts have a strict practice routine that allows them to become the best in their field. But their routine is nothing special, and you can apply it too.

So here is the 3-step routine that will help you master any skill you want in life.

1 – Set intense goals. (1)

You can’t set average goals when trying to improve a skill. Improvement is a challenge, so your goals should be challenging.

  • Set intense goals focused on a specific skill instead of the overall performance.
  • Leave out the skills you have already mastered. I used to concentrate on all my tasks at the maximum. But most times, I was so tired I couldn’t focus on the skill I wanted to improve. So, prioritize critical tasks and give them your undivided attention.
  • Work on a weakness. You can’t be good at everything. But you can become better or decent if you work on your weaknesses.

You can split your weaknesses into two categories:

  • The Improvement Bucket contains every task you could improve and master. 
  • The Delegation Bucket includes the activities you don’t like. Even if you become decent at them, you will never excel. So it’s better to give them to somebody else.

  • Give your goal undivided attention. Have you ever tried to study with the TV on? You can’t. So, reduce distractions to the minimum.
  • Work with great effort. You should know the task will be challenging from the start. So give everything you have because it could make the difference between success and failure.
  • Start with nobody watching. I used to practice my critical tasks publicly because I thought it could help me. But public practice adds up to the stress and makes you nervous. Plus, it can distract you easier. So don’t start with it if you are not ready yet.

3 – Never stop practicing.

3 – Never stop practicing.

You set your narrow goal and reach it once. But once is not enough. You have to be consistent and practice a lot.

Here are a few deliberate practice rules:

  • Total concentration and effort. Just because you reach your goal once, it doesn’t mean you can get distracted from now on.
  • Immediate and informative feedback. Find somebody like a mentor or a public that can give you honest feedback.
  • Repetition with Reflection & Refinement. Take a moment of reflection between training sessions. Try to understand the feedback and decode it into actionable steps.

Pick one specific skill you want to master or at least improve. Define the stretched goals you should reach to improve. Reach them consistently. And then, keep practicing.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
