SSP046 On Mastery and 10000 Hours

Released On: December 26, 2018

The “10,000 hour rule” has become a staple of the practicing artist. When applied with intention, the consistent daily effort of putting in your hours can produce results that appear to be magical to your audience. In today’s episode, we talk about how we’ve put in our time in the past, and what direction we’ll move in the future to continue our trajectory toward mastery.

We Talk About:

Why intentional and deliberate practice is the effort that matters.
Finding the balance between practice that forces us to grow and practice that is viable to our muse and market.
The gap between your taste and your ability.
How we differ in our approaches to solving story problems.
How emulating your idols can help you find your narrative voice.
With mastery comes trust in the process.

You're invited to join us at the final Smarter Artist Summit on February 18th and 19th in Austin, TX. Authors and publishing experts from around the world will join us to teach you strategies that will outlast the “what’s working yesterday” tactics everyone else is talking about. Attendance is limited, so reserve your spot at now.
