Getting Good at Things Again from Corbett Barr
I had to share this blog with you from ExpertEnough.com blog.
Getting Good at Things Again
Let’s set aside the broader societal points for a minute. What everyone else does might be depressing, but we can only really change our own behavior.
But most of us could use more doing and less consuming. If you want to acquire new skills, live an interesting life and do adventurous things, you have to get good at putting in the effort it takes to actually do those things.
Side note on definitions of “expert:” I’m a big believer in relative expertise. For most purposes, you don’t need to be the world’s foremost expert on something to benefit from what you know. Being expert enough means knowing enough or being good enough to accomplish your goals, however modest or grand they may be.
Think about all the things you’d love to be good at or know how to do. I’m talking about real renaissance person kinda stuff, or James Bond level skills.

Expert Enough is here to inspire you to learn more, do more, be more.
Life is richest when we become good at a lot of different things. We think terms like “know-it-all,” “jill of all trades” and “renaissance man” are compliments.
