My first goal when I started a journey to quit quitting was to do a pull-up. After months of training, giving up and starting again, and drinking protein shakes, I did one! It was a messy, difficult, and bumpy road there, but I made it. The MOST influential thing that helped me was when I had a one hour session with a Trainer at the gym.
This second goal of learning photography is a similar but longer road. It’s had ups and downs, frustration, giving up and re-starting, and a lot of confusion over buttons. Practicing every day made a big difference. Looking up photos I like made a difference. But the thing that was the most influential so far was meeting with a professional photographer.
I asked my questions, and she patiently and kindly showed me what some of the buttons on my camera did. And then I would say “Now isn’t that neat?!” because I’m 95 years old.
Point being, if you’re a quitter and can’t seem to see things through, look for a professional in that area, and ask to meet with them! We can use each other and our strengths and professions to meet our goals!
