On Building Skills

When it comes to building a skill, quantity helps with quality.

For example, writing, drawing, singing, making videos, gardening, cooking, waitressing, driving, sports, or musical instruments. There’s usually a positive correlation between quantity and quality. 

As in the more we deliberately practice our skills, the better we get at it.

When we’re starting out, it’s important to keep in mind which one of the two we actually focus on.
