If you want to be good enough to be noticed, you need to study from the best.
Carefully analyze what they do and how they do it, then try to mimic them just as the kids mimic speech before they can speak for themselves.
Once you build you foundation, it’s time to build in something yours, something that will imprint your mark; something only you can do.
It’s also important to study those are not as good in what they do. Just as you studied the masters, analyze what they do and how they do it and try not to make the same mistakes they made.
