“One of the only true shortcuts in life is finding an expert and apprenticing under them.” – James Clear
Pick something you want to be good / better / great at.
Identify who the goods, greats, and gods are in the field.
Read, listen, watch whatever you can, and…
Let them know.
Maybe you’ll form a relationship. Maybe they’ll put you onto some new stuff. Maybe they’ll put you onto a new path.
Online (and social media in particular) have created a new reality for apprenticeships. They really are a shortcut. Seek them out.
ps. they don’t ask you to apprentice under them, you ask them (and then keep showing up)
pss. that quote’s from James Clear’s 10/21/2021 newsletter. Words cannot express how much I’ve learned from that man over the years. From my exercise routine to my writing routine, study under the experts. More JC-inspired posts here.
