There Is Always More to Learn

We all know someone who claims to be a master of their craft right after they get started.

Maybe you’ve been guilty of it before.

This is something you have to make yourself very aware of...

It’s called the Dunning-Kruger effect.

It's a cognitive bias where you greatly overestimate your knowledge or competence in an area even when you have very little actual experience and expertise.

Basically, the moment you think you "get it"...

You're actually just starting to learn.

This fake sense of mastery is exactly what holds so many people back from learning and improving on their craft.

Real growth comes from the understanding that no matter how much you think you may know...

No matter how good you think you may be...

No matter what results you've been able to produce...

You will always have a lot more to learn and improve on.

This is perfectly represented by the Dunning-Kruger effect.

At first, you understand that you don't know shit...

But as you take in a lot of information quickly, you start to get a false sense of mastery.

Eventually, you start to realize that even though you know a lot more than when you started...

You still don't know shit, which humbles you to the long and slow process of true mastery.

I promise you this...

You aren't as good as you think you are.

Keep your head down...

You have a lot of work to do to become a true expert.
