Commonly Clever is ALIVE! Please note this is probably best said in the voice of Dr. Frankenstein; however, you can choose the voice of your liking. Welcome to Commonly Clever!
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could simply plug in a link cable between you and your ‘idols’ brain and transfer only the very best of information to your own? Who would you transfer it from? What data would you transfer and why? What would you do with the knowledge after it was imported?
Everyone is a Clever-Expert
There are so many people in my life who amaze me. They have skills, talents, and abilities that I can only dream of possessing. Each of these folks works countless hours to progress further and further. Each, at one point, likely shed blood, sweat, and tears to learn and grow in their specific realm of expertise. From my perspective, they are living life to the fullest by continuing their education in their field of interest. Think of how much time you would save if you instantly learned the tricks and tips that brought them to where they are today.
Take my dad, for example, the guy is amazing at restoring cars to better-than-factory condition. He has decades of practice and continues to get better at his hobby with every project. I have this same interest; however, I lack the experience, tools, and knowledge that he has. What was he forced to learn over the decades? If he was giving advice to someone just starting out, what clever tips would he offer to help them jump-start progress? What trials would the beginner get to skip past because of them?
Another example is my wife who plays the piano so beautifully. I cannot imagine playing as well, or even at all like she does. I frequently catch myself staring at her fingers as she plays and wonder, “How the heck does she do that?!” What clever tips and tricks does she have to offer those wanting to learn to play the piano or even just to take his or her skills to the next level? I am even curious where she goes to get herself to the next level.
If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try Something Different
My career gives me the opportunity to deal with people who seem to enjoy complaining. Most of the time their frustrations boil down to expecting different results after trying the same thing over and over. You may have once heard the proverb that states, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Please be warned this does not mean “try the same thing over and over again.”
