Slow but steady wins the race

Slow but steady wins the race

Want to become an expert film maker?

Let me tell you a story…

You may have heard of the hare and the tortoise from Aesop’s fables. The hare is so confident of beating the tortoise in a race that he stops halfway for a sleep. The tortoise determinedly plods on, never stopping, until he overtakes the sleeping hare and wins the race.

Slow but steady wins the race. The moral of the story. And a great life lesson too.

But how does this story apply to making videos?

The answer is that everyone can become better at the art of film-making simply by doing it more.

Psychologists have researched how 10,000 hours of practice can make you an expert. In anything. Even if you have very little natural talent when you start.

And American writer James Clear demonstrates how if you get 1% better at something each day for one year, you’ll end up 37 times better by the end. Small improvements soon add up to massive change.

So be encouraged. When you commit to exploring and developing your film-making skills, you WILL get better and better.

You already have an advantage

By using the Teleprompter for Video app, you’ve already taken a big leap forward in producing more professional videos. Because with the app, you’ll quickly be natural and confident – and word perfect – in your presentation style. And the more you practice, the better you’ll get.

It’s like the tortoise being given rollerskates
