Skill is something you can learn.
All it takes is time.
But more important, nothing less.
But I don’t know how you define talent.
Something you are born with? I don’t believe that.
Everyone starts the same.
But I do believe that anything that matters is a skill. Not talent.
If one person is able to put in the time and learn it, if that person is able to use effort and get good at it, it’s a skill.
And that’s why I like skill.
It’s incredibly empowering and opens up opportunities for you.
So what are you going to learn next?
I rested my head
against the comfort of
my pillow and closed
in the hope of
for a change.
just few hours
of pitch dark velvet
sky over me
I got up and
sat down against
the back of my chair.
the reflected rays
of the sun
had flooded the room.
I tried again.
and this time,
the sleep snuck up on me
like a hunter stalking
an unsuspecting prey.
Ever tried, ever failed. No matter.
she spent her time
taking the time out
to water the
bushes and thorns.
and while she
sat there in her
she looked around her
why nothing ever
all the pretty smiles,
and heads held high
in the bright texan sun
in the ocean
they were made of
visible to my eyes
If only they had believed me.
The best works of art
are the expression
to free himself from his condition.
I’ve seen that many people allow emotions to get the best of them.
When there’s really no room for emotions in the big leagues.
Passion? Yes. That’s different.
But being clouded by the insecurities is a huge vulnerability.
That’s what I think and have seen around me.
So instead of dwelling on our shortcomings, I instinctively feel we should focus
our time and triple down on our strengths and passion.
Because we all have so many shortcomings.
No one’s perfect.
Not even you.
So stop acting like one.
“I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn’t quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn’t make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
Time is everyone’s number one asset.
Probably the only asset we have as human beings.
We don’t even realize this
but we love time way too much.
Think back to when your internet connection was slow
and how much pissed off you got when your Instagram took forever to load.
See? You cared about how much time you could have saved.
But we still act like we have a lot of it when it comes to
doing things that we really want to do.
But honestly, we don’t.
So if you really want to make things happen, spend this asset wisely.
