Photographer and a blogger and an artist- all they can do is ONE THING at a time. And if they are good at one thing, they might be able to be good at another, maybe. See for yourself, Someone who says they are everything (blogger, fashion stylist, writer, and a cook) can only do ONE thing at any given time, and one thing well. Someone who does something well does this thing all the time, always. They are at their desk, at their studio, at their machine, every day, every moment is spend only doing it.
Why am I talking about this and why is this point important? It's a reminder to those people who thinks they are polymaths, who thinks they have so much to give, they want to do more then one thing well and they want to think they can do everything well all the time. Well you can't! NOT REALLY! Unless you have super human power, all those things that looks 'effortless' in other's works, website, blog, are all 'NOT' effortless, they take effort, a good lot of it. Those people who make things look effortless spend a lot of time on it, and there is no such thing as effortless good work.
Good work is about hard work that repeats itself and a lot of sweating, a lot of agony and perhaps even a certain degree of discomfort. You can bet your ass on it that all good work are done this way. If you ever meet someone who said everything comes easily to them, it's not that they are lying, it is true for them because their perspective of hard work might be different from yours. Consider the idea that comes within splits seconds and how those millions of ideas never becomes anything. People who are good at making a single idea become something work their day and night existence to bring life to those ideas.
A single idea and a single 'act of brilliance' never becomes something by itself. A single idea becomes meaningful because of the hard work, the toiling, and the sweating.
What's your single idea that you want to make good work out of?
Here are some examples of my friends who's work are so good because they just don't stop.
