There’s no born expert.
“I wish I could master English like you do.”
Some Japanese friends said to me. Nope. My English is far from perfect. That’s why I still learn the language every day.
My old friend is the owner and chef of a Chinese restaurant. He was very good at cooking even when he was in junior high. But he is still developing his culinary skills every day.
Becoming an expert is not a short-term project. It can be lifetime. People may recognize you as an expert in a short period of time, but that is just a milestone. You should not stop learning.
Learn one thing at a time. Challenge yourself. Improve 1% every day. Be humble and learn from everybody.
And more importantly, don’t compare yourself with others while learning. Your mastery merely belongs to you, not someone else.
