Skills and Attitude, they go together right? Giving an extreme value to the core knowledge and skills is part of a good attitude. It can prevent us from being overwhelmed by the complexity of the process as we move forward. Now, what do we need to maintain them?… Knowledge. How do we acquire it?… Through learning. They sound too plain, like “a cliche” possibly, but maybe the reason why things are slipping away is that we neglect to see that they (the cliches we usually ignore)are the main foundation of the abilities we build within us. Take mastering the guitar as an example, we are expected to study the family chords first which are A, Bb, B, C, Db, D, Eb, E, F, F#, G and Ab than the scales, which are more complicated. You cannot just take charge in playing the lead guitar without knowing these patterns (family chords). Even if you become a pro in playing the guitar, you still don’t forget the family chords because it is the foundation; part of the package. This applies to other things too, and learning? We’ve been doing this since we were kids. Why stop when we need it the most?
