How to Tell if You’ll Reach Excellence in Your Craft
Shreyas Doshi is my favorite product thinker. In this short snippet, he talks about how you know you’ll reach mastery in your craft:
If you aren’t thinking about your craft in your free time, you are very likely not going to be extremely successful at that craft. This should be things you are thinking about. When you’re on the bus, when no one’s forcing you, you’re thinking about this. Every person that’s really good at something does this. How do they do this? It comes from love. Love of the craft.
Recently, I adopted a craftsman perspective when it comes to creating products and writing. The motivation to continuously improve one’s craft is both fun and sustainable.
