Think it takes a lifetime of practice and some innate rhythm to dance well? Or that becoming a designer takes four years of school? Karen Cheng takes that notion and pop and locks all around it.
She learned to dance in a year. She also became a graphic designer quickly.
Don't assume that learning takes four years and an official degree or that a new talent will take a decade to develop. You can control your own timeline.
It may be full of late nights or skipped social engagements, but the clock is ticking. It's up to you what you do with all those ticks.
