Back to Basics

To become really good at something, you must go back to basics. Keep imagining the basics that make up that skill.

If you are to be a great baseball player, you imagine yourself hitting baseballs and catching baseballs. Everywhere you go--plane, bus, or train--you imagine these 2 events over and over again in many different forms.

A great singer will imagine herself singing notes magnificently. She will see herself hitting these notes and sustaining them beautifully.

It is by imagining the most basic of things that you become really good. Why? Because you are not really good at something until you can do basic things very easily.

This is how you build a career. Imagine yourself doing the most fundamental things in that career well and you will.
