❗ If you have good eyes, you'll notice I had to re-record the ending audio and overlay it. It IS me playing, but courtesy of thin studio walls = bad audio, I don't own any of those fancy mics, and I'm working on a shoestring budget here, please forgive me trying to save money!!
I’ve always been an obsessive learner. I enjoy the process of deconstructing a skill and figuring out what would be the best way to learn that particular skill very quickly. On this channel I document those challenges.
You can see my final drum performance towards the end of this video, but my favorite part of the whole challenge were actually the days I was practicing the drums. Don’t get me wrong, hitting my intended goal on Day 30 felt exhilarating, but I also believe that there’s an inherent thrill and value in taking the time to pursue a hobby, and working towards incremental improvements on a daily basis.
I hope this video sparks two thoughts:
1) Becoming good at a new skill isn’t as hard as most people think. When was the last time you spent a focused full hour per day (or even just 30 minutes) practicing something for 30 days? I believe most people would be surprised at what they accomplish.
2) We live in a world full of specialists and immediate gratification - if a task is not visibly applicable to one’s job or is tied to a direct monetary value, we often don’t pursue it. However, I'd like to make a case for the the love for learning and the pursuit of improvement itself. I hope this video inspires at least one person to take on their own learning challenge.
