To get exceptional at doing something you need to spend a lot of time and effort.
My problem is picking only one or two things. I want to be great at doing everything. I want to shoot photos, read amazing books, write stuff that connects with people, learn everything I can about history, philosophy, religion, psychology, and medicine, I want to lift weights, ride my bicycle like a pro, make top-notch videos, be an amazing logo designer, be amazing at drawing, at illustrating, motion graphics, social media marketing, I want to be an amazing chef, and I want to combine all that stuff while traveling to cool places in the world and share everything via videos I make while doing all that stuff.
But the truth is, without focusing on being great at a couple of things, all that other stuff most-likely won’t come. You need your hits, but you only need a couple of hits. Most artists get popular on the back of a song or two. If it’s good enough for them, it’s probably good enough for you and me.
Get good (really good) and start making stuff and the hits will start coming.
