So you want to be the best?
The big numero uno?
The one who stands above the rest — skilled, talented, and useful?
It’s actually a lot easier than you think.
In fact, once you know how it’s done, you likely won’t believe it.
But the fact remains, it’s true.
You really can be the best at what you do — or at the very least, more proficient and competent than most.
All it takes is a little effort and commitment.
Here’s what you gotta do:
First, decide what it is you want to master.
Do you want to be a great writer? A great painter? A great cook?
What is it that you want to get good at?
This shouldn’t be hard.
Everyone has something that calls for them. You’ll know what it is.
It’s that thing you’ve got a knack for… that you love and can’t get enough of, even though you likely don’t spend nearly enough time doing it.
We all want to be better at something.
Got it? Perfect.
Now the important part.
What you need to do next is, you need to find and set aside an hour each day. That’s it. Just one hour.
Wake up earlier. Stay up later. Do whatever you have to do.
If you really want to be the best at what you do, you’ll find this hour. Untold fortunes are depending on it.
Then, what you’re going to do is, you’re going to devote that hour exclusively to the one thing you want to be better at.
Paint for an hour.
Write for an hour.
Study recipes for an hour.
Cook for an hour.
It doesn’t matter what it is.
What matters is that you spend your hour doing that one thing.
And, if for any reason, you’re not feeling up to the task…
Do it anyway!
Power through it.
Get it done.
Put in the work every single day.
Why? Because you’ll be the only one doing it.
No one else is going to put in that kind of effort.
You’ll be part of a select group of people who work on becoming better every day.
And I’m not just whistlin’ dixie over here.
It’s what I’ve been doing, too — hence why I’ve written over 300 articles since my last birthday.
Sure, this piece might not be the best on the web.
But that’s not the point.
The point is that I’ve been showing up every day. And with each article I publish, I get a little better. I get a little more skilled. I get a little more experienced and proficient at what I do.
The fact is…
Hardly anyone puts in this kind of effort. That’s why it’s so easy to stand out from almost everyone else.
1 hour a day — that’s it.
Find it, commit to it, dig in, and get the work done.
It will amaze you how far this simple act can take you.
And who knows, you might even become one of the best along the way.
And when you’re ready
