Getting Good at Pretty Much Anything

Listening to an archived Developer Tea interview with Chris Coyier recently, I was struck with how the craftsman’s mentality has been around awhile, yet it is still hard for many of us to understand that all it takes to be good at something is putting in the time and persevering through the challenges of mastering a skill.

My takeaways from this podcast episode which I’ve discovered myself in this past year:

  • Do it a bunch.
  • Keep doing it.
  • Spend a lot of time doing it.
  • Do the job.
