Since it’s just you and me here, I’ll admit a secret: I really hate being terrible at something.
When I try to pick-up a new skill, I take a look around at people that have been doing that “thing” for years, and I immediately want to be on their level. I want the instant gratification of being excellent instead of slogging through years of being terrible.
Here we are at the end of three months of full immersion and guess what? I’m nowhere near where I thought I would be.
