“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, But I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times”- Bruce lee
Those words should resonate with most people. Bruce Lee was an amazingly strong man that accomplished many things in his life. Here I have adapted that quote to writing, filmmaking, and other types of careers people have.
You see the key to really surpassing those that don’t commit to what it is they want to do, is to commit yourself to practicing every single day.
Robert Greene’s Book “Mastery” investigates many of the greats that mastered their craft and were able to receive recognition.
– Don’t fear the filmmaker that buys a thousand cameras/equipment and never makes a film. Fear the filmmaker that practices with one camera and makes many films.
-Don’t fear the writer that never writes, fear the writer that writes every single day.
-Don’t fear the photographer that studies photography, fear the photographer that takes photos every day.
-Don’t fear the rapper that raps & writes once and a while, fear the rapper that raps and writes every single day.
Are you really a writer? really a filmmaker? Come on. Cut the video games out, cut the excess Netflix crap, master the craft.
Two ways that people filter fear. One is that people allow fear to hinder them and others use fear to push themselves past limits. They quickly learn that that wasn’t a limit. Those that are working while you procrastinate will get past and maybe take your job. It’s a hard truth. The only way to prevent that is to stop procrastinating and get to work. You can do it, just use your time to master your craft.
