Studying (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.
You 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.
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.
