At the beginning of the year, many people in the Internet circle said that Luo Zhenyu's New Year's Eve speech was selling knowledge anxiety.
Before the Spring Festival, Youzan's 996 work system was swiped and complained continuously for a long time.
We do not discuss how these two things are in themselves, true or false, right or wrong. How many people have wondered why this content is so easy to spread?
Brother Z believes that the reason behind it is because we always have unequal expectations for "giving" and "receiving". Once this expectation is brutally broken by reality, "emotions" will be generated involuntarily. Since emotions are generated, they need to be expressed and spit out quickly.
For example, when you buy a column, you always think that after you finish your studies, you will be able to fight hard, get a promotion and raise your salary, and become the general manager.
Or, when you are at work and in life, you always wonder if there is any "shortcut" or labor-saving way to accomplish something.
I even hope to have the skills that others don't have.
Seeing this, a pessimist might say: There must be no such thing as a "thousand-mile" skill, how can there be such a good thing. An optimist might say: there must be, the world is so big, I just don't know it.
1. Is there really a "thousands of miles in a day" skills?
Brother Z's answer to this question will be put aside and announced at the end of the article. Let's not talk about the existence of "a thousand miles in a day" skills, but we can imagine what would happen if there were such skills?
Profit-seeking is one of human nature. It is also a matter of investing "one day" of time to travel "ten miles" and "thousands of miles". How would you choose? The latter must be preferred.
Let’s pull the perspective to the society we live in. In fact, the evolution of many “new technologies” can already well reflect what will happen to those skills that are “thousands of miles in a day”.
There are many new technologies that can improve the original work efficiency thousands of times, right? I think everyone can agree with this.
Then what happened? It will gradually spread to everyone.
For example, the emergence of bb machines and mobile phones has increased the efficiency of contacting a person by N times.
In this way, from the Latest Mailing Database perspective of efficiency itself, will anyone still use the method of writing letters to communicate? The answer is obvious.
But why did the phone win in the end? Because the communication efficiency of the mobile phone is higher than that of the bb machine, the mobile phone is a real-time two-way communication, and the bb machine is one-way.
Therefore, in terms of completing a complete communication, the bb machine is "ten miles a day", while the mobile phone is "a thousand miles a day".
Therefore, even if the skill of "a thousand miles in a day" exists, it will be quickly popularized among the target groups who have this demand. Once popularized, everyone will be on the same starting line again .
2. So how can I run faster than others and achieve overtaking on a corner?
You also know very well that the popularization of a skill definitely takes time, so by taking advantage of this time difference, you can achieve acceleration and transcendence in a short period of time.
So, how can we get a bigger time difference?
This involves another dimension of discussion, and skills are also divided into vertical levels.
Many superficial and very specific techniques for accomplishing one thing are actually composed of more abstract techniques at the next level. However, the more abstract the technique is, the more it will resemble the big truth, and it will appear "easier to know than to do", which is often ignored by most of us .
However, if you look at it from a long-term perspective, you will find that the lower-level skills have more growth potential, and can provide you with long-term and growing acceleration momentum .
