I’ve been doing a lot of learning new things lately.
My day job has been full of new learning. So much new learning. New programs, new systems, new ideas, new ways of working.
I’ve been taking on a new writing strategy and kind of way of thinking and that’s a lot of new learning.
I finally bit the bullet and took on a new DAW this weekend and am trying to learn to use that and learn a new way to do that work.
It’s something I know but forget, it exhausts me so much. Which I think is fairly normal. It requires a lot of new skills, brain power, and sometimes changing the ways you physically do things. Creating those new patterns and pathways in the brain in a lot of work.
It is also really frustrating to feel not good at something you’ve previously felt skilled at. And it’s not great to stack them on top of each other. I’m very much feeling a deep I’m not good at anything because of all of these parts stacking up on each other.
What do you do to learn? To feel like you excel at something? To get your footing under you in a new realm?
