Over the weekend, I got a chance to catch up with one of my good associates who’s an entrepreneur at heart and a talented musician. |
The conversation was mainly focused on a big project he was getting ready to launch and how I can help him with the email marketing side of things.
Before we ended our conversation, he was kind enough to give me access to his Udemy account where I can watch some of the music production courses he bought.
So yesterday night I logged on to his account and was amazed, to say the least. I had instant access to so much knowledge in so many different areas.
I even saw a course teaching you how to play the piano and how to compose music. Nice, finally! Two things I desperately needed help with.
But as I browsed through his other courses, I noticed something interesting.
He bought a total of 77 courses, and I counted the number of courses he actually completed.
He only completed six courses. And there were more that were incomplete. What’s the point of buying all of them if you’re going to let most of them just sit there unopened?
I can’t judge because he was kind enough to let me use his account. But also I used to go through a similar problem.
When I first started copywriting, I would buy and read all these books, which was great. I was learning a lot of new things. The problem was I wasn’t doing enough writing, which is what I was supposed to be doing. It’s even in the word itself, copyWRITING.
And that’s why I read less and write more now, because there is such a thing as being mentally fat. When you’re taking in a lot of information, but you’re not implementing enough so then you’ll get the feeling of information overload.
So if you want to improve your writing (or anything for that matter), just start! It doesn’t matter if it’s a novel, a blog post, or even a short email. As long as you’re writing, you’re already in the process of improving.
