If you want to get better at anything, you need three things.
One…the awareness, acceptance and humility that you need to get better.
Two…a burning desire to get better.
Three…a plan that involves consistent action, specific measurables and deadlines. This way, you can test your plan and see if you need to tweak or iterate anything.
If you want to speed up the process, surround yourself with people who are better than you at the thing you’re trying to achieve. A personal example…Besides my love of the game, the main reason I got pretty good at hoops was because I skipped grades and as a result I was forced to play with older kids who were much better than me. (Shout out to my ole pal Tony C., and all those late night one on one battles under the flickering sodium light at Surfside Park.)
