How’s it going? Yesterday, I said I’d talk about something that I’d heard a copywriter say was necessary for success in business (but that almost nobody does), and that it was obvious (at least to me) that the gaming Youtuber I watched last week had done this particular thing.
This is Part 4, if I’m counting correctly.
Let’s get to it.
I’d watched all 45 videos that this Youtuber had put out about the game that I play that he does, too. But I didn’t realize something important until he said for the second time that he’d run out of ideas, and that he brain-dumped everything he could think of about this game on to Youtube. In other words, maybe without realizing it, he’d attempted to achieve:
Deep study or mastery of a subject.
And that’s the something that a copywriter I know of said a lot of people don’t do–they study a little on a lot of things, instead of going all in on one thing to learn it really, really well.
Excellence is hard to achieve–I’m not dumb enough to pretend it’s not. But that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try, does it? It takes a long time–and I think mastery is something where all of a sudden you look up, and people are asking you for advice, or following you, or what-have-ya. To me, it’s not something someone who’s really on the journey runs around bragging about–they’re too busy trying to move forward and discover more and more.
And even though this Youtuber plays a lot of other games, it’s my opinion that he did achieve a deep understanding of the one that I was watching, even if he didn’t mean to.
Tomorrow is Triple F–be sure to stop by.
Until next time,
