The Easiest Way to Improve Your Skill, with Very Little Effort

Sounds too good to be true… but I promise you, from my very own experience, I can tell you, it isn’t.

Learning is deemed sometimes to be difficult… and in so many cases, we’re made to feel stupid and dumb, incapable and not bright enough to learn certain subjects, methods, instruments, sports etc.

However if you set your heart and mind on the goal of learning a new skill, acquiring the ability to do something you can’t right now; with the right amount of effort – ironically, very little effort – you can learn and discover a range of skills and teach yourself any number of things.

The biggest and most important thing to take from what you read below – is to not overthink, or overdo. Less is more,  5 minutes a day focused on your new goal of learning a skill, is more beneficial to you and your learning, than 50 minutes a day.

The most common issue with learning, is people make it too hard, too long and too complicated.

With our eBooks, we take away the complicated part – because we keep it simple and straightforward.

However, if you try and condition yourself to spending so many hour(s) on learning a new skill, tomorrow, you’ll be totally put off by it and then you’ll procrastinate. You’ll begin to say things to yourself, such as… “I don’t have time to do this today, I’ve got to ____” fill in the blank, of a million other things.

The quickest way to learn something, is to

  1. decide what the goal is, and make it clear in your mind.
  2. decide how much time you can really give it.
  3. Put those two things into action, every day.

Now, lets say when you look at your goal and how much time you have to put it into action, every day, you might find yourself saying… “I only have 5-10 minutes” a day to do that.

Perfect. If you’re able to continuously do something towards your goal, for 5-10 minutes every single day, for 3 months, 6 months… 1 year. Then you’ll look back on your ability a few months down the line, and be absolutely stunned by your progress.

5-10 minutes can also be translated into, doing something regularly, in a week / month.

Let’s say, you want to get fit – what you don’t want to do, is say you’ll run every day… instead, say you’ll go for a run, twice a week. Then slowly build it up to once a day, if that’s what you think you want/can do.

The fastest way to fail, is to overcommit, try and do too much all at once in the beginning. What happens is, you find it difficult to break a habit of (not doing), and start a new goal – so if you rush headfirst into it, it feels too hard, and the resistance you’ll feel inside of yourself, to not do it, will be almost impossible to resist.

So to get started and begin improving your photography and/or modelling techniques and skills – I want you to follow 3 steps and keep things simple for yourself…

  • Have a clear goal in mind
  • Dedicate a small amount of time to it everyday
  • Learn the skills you need from our range of eBooks, which are made simple and will help you learn in the best, easiest way possible.
