    RE: Skill that you want to develop

    I have realised that there is a skill I want to develop, far beyond learning instruments or anything else for that matter. Although there is always room for improvement, I do have the ability to develop indie games. However, what has held me back is not being able to draw, and I've always been hopeless. But the reality I'm learning is that more or less anybody can draw, myself included. I just negatively told myself I couldn't, probably due to being belittled by talented, yet arrogant artsy types at a young age.

    So, I bought a bunch of art books recently, and supplies/a sketchpad. It's a start, and it will do. These books are amongst the best for beginners. The final step to getting started since I really don't have any space to do so right now is to get a new desk. But I intend to get two. One for my computer that will hold both of my 3D monitors comfortably, and a table that is perfect for any budding artist. Whilst I can get flat-packed computer desks on Amazon/eBay, I think either Freecycle or Craigslist would be a good idea first for the desk and table.

    I read about someone who got an old desk which was in good condition and was originally around 10,000 for about 80. I doubt I'll get a deal that good, but I'll see what I can find.

    As I mentioned in another thread, I'm developing a game on a part-time basis. I enjoy retro consoles and computers in particular and love how awesome many games turned out within those limitations. While I'm currently developing for the PC and mobile, I'd really like to make a game for old hardware. But to make a game run efficiently on a vintage system, one needs to learn the assembly language related to the processor that system uses. This is quite difficult and not the way games are made nowadays, but it would be really cool to learn assembly and master those old classic systems.

    I'd like to be better at drawing, but I don't know if I'd want to be the 'best'. Just good enough to hand-do my comics xD But maybe being best at making comics would be fun? o3o

    I don't think that in anything subjective there even can be 'best'. When it comes to drawing you can draw something bad (i.e., lack the skill) or draw it in your personal way. We could easily compare manga and western comics, because their drawing styles are fundamentally differen't (let's just forget all the sub-genres here for the sake of simplicity), yet you can't say which one would be "better" than another one.

    Same goes with music. It's all subjective, so while you could be the faster guitar player on Earth, you wouldn't still be able to create universally "best" music.

    I also am trying my hand and writing and it is no walk in the park trust me. However, we just have to keep at it. DO not worry my friend you will get better but you have to keep practicing. That is the key. I also want to learn a second language(procrastinating too much) and also this one is my favorite - How to remain focused.

    I would like to become the best strategist. To me, this would be the linchpin to opening the most doors. I am not competitive so being able to naturally see a plan to win would be helpful. It would help me to focus on the goal instead of my nervousness in competition. It would also make one resilient if it was second nature to see the master plan.

    Sometimes you just have to have faith in your own abilities and being a better strategist doesn't necessarily make you the best. It takes willpower, confidence and courage to really stand strong. Instead of trying to compete, try doing things in a unique fashion as this will make you far more noticeable and also hard to compete against because let's face it. Not a lot of people are very creative. Logic alone cannot determine the outcome of any situation. Trust your instincts and let them guide you.

    That is great bro. Take it one step at a time and break down your goal into smaller pieces. I find that sometimes when the obstacle seems too big you just have to take it in smaller manageable parts. For eg. try drawing a star or something like that(don't take me literal) but you get the point and just keep chipping away at your goal bit by bit. This also prevents procrastination because what I have found in my experiences is often times we procrastinate because we want to do something but the goal seems so big so we just waste time on something else.
