I chuckled recently when someone in a webinar explained that there was no shortcut to learning something…one has to get through the material methodically.
It sounded so simple, and yet how often do we look for shortcuts? The trick is that in some things we are wasting time doing things the hard way. There may be a shortcut, or maybe the task just simply doesn’t need to be done, or not by us, or not in that way. Yet, for other things, we have to dive in and actually get through it, to learn it, to get to the other side.
It’s nice when someone tells us there is no shortcut. What about when they don’t? Are we questioning in the right places?
