Building Expertise in a Year

Carolyn sent this to me this morning.

It is pretty incredible to see his improvement every few seconds as the video progresses from month to month over the course of a year.

Initially, it also made me feel a bit lazy. This guy throws everything over the course of year to be an expert at table tennis. What do I do in the same amount of time?

But I realized that it isn’t that I don’t do anything, I simply move from subject to subject and get to a level of understanding about the topic at hand. Then I┬ámake a conscious decision to keep going, or switch my attention to something else.

The lesson in both paths: Never Stop Learning.
