Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere |The Importance Of Studying

Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere |The Importance Of StudyingStudying (and research) should be an important part of your life. I’m not talking about being in education. The whole process of education today, in my opinion, is futile with the advent of the internet. Educational systems encourage you to learn only what is needed in order to pass the test given to you. I’m talking about freely studying your desired profession or field extensively in order to maximise your time and efforts.

Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere |The Importance Of StudyingYou may think that the reason I’m able to produce, rap, sing, direct, edit and write is a result of my talent, but I’d be inclined to disagree. My talent, I believe, is the ability to learn very quickly and to focus very intensely on what I want to accomplish while performing mental jujitsu to avoid distractions. 

The time I’ve spent on studying and learning about these different skills is what makes me good (well, I think so anyways) at implementing them. I also get better at these skills by using them and practising them, but studying the mistakes and successes of others saves me a lot of valuable time.

Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere |The Importance Of StudyingYou should aim to know all the rules in your field before you attempt to break them. That, I believe, is the difference between being an innovator and being crap.

So let’s recap: studying saves you time and effort. It also gives you the ability to become an innovator within your area of work. With a little research and hard work, you can do anything really.

About the author 

Jay Cartere

Who is Jay Cartere?

It's a long story, but I'm going to make it short because I respek your time...

I'm a producer, rapper, singer and creative entrepreneur from London.

My musical journey started in 2007 when I decide to spit some lyrics to a grime beat... through a laptop.

That's right, no mic or anything - I was spitting DIRECTLY into the laptop cuz.

It's safe to say things have changed since then...

But, that's not all:

The journey has never been easy...I had to put my entrepreneurial mind to work and figure this stuff out.

I taught myself how to record and engineer my music.

I also had to learn how to film and edit music videos.

How to market, promote, sell and build a business.

Poverty gave me the pressure I needed to develop these skills...

Now I'm gonna share those skills with you...
