Expert Enough: The Lost Art of Becoming Good at Things

Screenshot
Expert Enough, a blog by Corbett Barr and Caleb Wojick, two young entrepreneurial polymaths, begins with a simple premise: "We are all capable of so much more than we think." From there, Barr and Wojick posit that one doesn't need to be the world's greatest expert in anything, just "expert enough" to accomplish prescribed goals, and that it actually takes "surprisingly little effort in most fields" to gain that expertise. After skimming the homepage, which lays out the Expert Enough philosophy, readers may like to dive in to the site's most popular articles, which include such missives as "The Lost Art of Becoming Good at Things," "Deliberate Practice: What It Is and Why You Need It," and "The Expert Enough Manifesto." From there, explore the full archives to find recent posts such as "Become an Expert DJ in Two Months" and "10 Steps to Create a Standing Ovation Worthy TED Talk," as well as a Most Used Categories section and archives organized by year and month. While it seems that the Expert Enough blog is currently on hiatus, there are plenty of interesting ideas here for readers that would like to learn new subjects.
