I decided to do this and I think I have been better for it.

Although, other skills entice me as well but then, sticking to one particular skill has helped me become stronger in that area.

Study - Practice - Teach (or earn).

That's the rule.

Thanks for this and for reminding me to stick to a particular skill (I remembered when I wanted to start coding and you refused to add me to the group (grasshopper) even though I passed the test. πŸ˜‚. You told me to focus)

I was angry that day but now that I look back at it, I realize how much you helped me and I'm grateful to you.

Well I believe most people do that out of fear of not earning enough from one source, like they don't have enough confidence in their ability to properly utilize one skill so well that they make money from it. What if it turns out to be irrelevant? I used to be like this, maybe I still am, can't really say.

Hit-and-run visionaries... that's what's doing so many people. I have 3 professional skills that has been paying me for a while now. I started with one, then I glued to it for a very long time with the money attached to it. One skill can feed you for life, but if you know the capacity of ur brain you can diversify.

All we need is focus, persistency and balancing.

Thanks Ajulu for sharing this.

Thank you for preaching about focus, consistency and discipline. It has already helped me a lot in this period. I'm anticipating another Business and Skill hangout πŸ™Œ

Ajulu, your newsletters have a way of speaking to me in particular.

Thank you as you press my neck

This is a great concept. I struggle with skill social distancing out of fear of becoming obsolete in whatever skills I decide to drop (even temporarily). Great for professional goals, but sucky for personal ones. Maybe now is an excellent time for me to practice skill monogamy.

Preach! We all need to learn to prioritize action. Learn, act, rinse and repeat!

Thank you very much Ajulu for this reminder. I've been swapped with taking many courses but I'm yet to be good in any of them. Maybe i'm still trying to figure out my niche. Just maybe? But I'll make conscious effort to stick to one and develop it.
