Professional Adaptation

Just because you’re a professional photographer doesn’t make you a great iPhoneographer. Just because you’re a famous comedian doesn’t make you a great Tweeter.

Format-shifting a traditional skill set to modern technology is apparently difficult, like a tennis player trying to dominate ping pong. But it’s still mind boggling to me how a photographer with a good eye can share such shitty photos.

The iPhone has enabled amateur photographers to catch up to professionals. The same can be said about amafessional bloggers competing with best selling authors and bedroom musicians making the iTunes Charts.

Different platforms require different skills. If you’re not in tune with technology you’re likely to be replaced by someone who knows how to use it.

Creativity is boundless once you give ordinary people the same tools. The amateurs will once again be weeded out by consistency. Real professionals show up and practice their art every day. The adaptive only thrive when they commit full time.


If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:

1. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
2. Read more. Try Audible free and experience the world's largest library of audiobooks.
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
