There are always new skills to master in life. When we become proficient or skilled in something new, that isn’t the time to just rest on your laurels. It’s time to learn a new skill or find new ways to use the ones we have. For example, I’m always trolling food blogs at work, trying to pick up new recipes and techniques to try out.
I mean, I went to culinary school. I’ve learned a lot about pastry and savory cooking, but I can’t have learned everything. There’s always more out there to see and do and try (and eat!).
I realized at some point that I had a suite of Adobe software on my laptop that I didn’t know about (thanks to the ex, I suppose). It includes Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro, all of which I think I could stand to use in my life. Maybe someday I’ll need to know a bit more about graphic design or want to make video tutorials of some kind. You never know! And it may come in handy for this blog or for my work someday.
Luckily, there’s a ton of great tutorials for these programs on YouTube. Sure, it’s also full of cat videos, but YouTube can be incredibly helpful when it comes to learning a new skill. So get out there and learn – and never stop!
