Daily Quote


Learning a new skill can be an exciting and terrifying experience. There are new skills to learn, a new lingo to speak and huge expectations to succeed. We can feel like a kid learning to ride a two-wheeler, fearing falls, scraped knees, and broken bones. Half the battle with learning to ride a bike is gaining the confidence you can defy gravity.

There are tricks to help us succeed. The first trick is to set ourselves up for success. Setting small attainable goals and building on a track record of success puts us in the right mindset to attempt more difficult challenges. Give yourself a set of training wheels and then get on your bike and practice every day.

Have you set yourself up to succeed?


Keep on writing.

  1. They say that it takes 10,000 hours to master a skill. I’ve sunk a lot of time into guitar playing but nowhere near that much. But I dunno in my opinion you don’t need to master things- as long as I am on the road to 10,000 hours I am a musician. And as long as I’m bettering myself that’s good enough for me 🙂

    Great quote. I was listening to Macklemore when I read it so the whole 10,000 hours thing just kind of popped into my head. Must seem a little random haha

  2. i need to expand my vocabulary, this holds me back, I may know a word but struggle to place it in a sentence sometimes, I must work on this. the skill also comes when we get good critique, having two editors who are brutal and ruthless has taught me a lot.
