Sometimes you have to allow yourself to be bad at doing things.
I'm not encouraging you to be irresponsible, lazy or illogical.
However, I am encouraging you to try out something you're not naturally good at, and watch the growth that follows.
Whether you're trying something new or taking your craft to the next level, you won't always be great at it. But if you're really learning and growing in a transformative way, should that even be the goal?
Struggling to do something isn't what limits you. Being too afraid to work through it is.
You don't have to be great at everything, but you do have to be willing to work past the discomfort that comes along with getting GREAT. And often, part of that process involves sometimes just not being good.
Remember, how you deal with your L's can be more important than how you deal with your W's.
