The Truth About Being An Expert

 

To be a true expert, you must constantly learn, and always be a student. Sound strange? Not really. Times change, new things evolve, and you have to keep up. Also, you are never done learning. There are always ways to improve your knowledge and ability in something, and evolve it. As one person always told me, “The best teachers are also students.”

A true expert knows both theory from all their textbook learning, etc., and application. That is where all that practice and work in the nitty-gritty come in. Who would you trust more, a surgeon who read a bunch of books on surgery for 10 years, but never did it, or someone who has read and performed operations for the same time?

Long story short there is no shortcut to being an expert. I have seen a lot of schemes where there are “instructional videos” and such to make you a pro on something. Not going to happen. Knowledge, experience, and true dedication makes you a true professional. You have to do it for years, and people can instantly spot a true pro from someone green a mile away.
