Now this here, this is what the Conquer List was really meant for. This book, according to the author, is “designed for persons who cannot draw at all, who feel that they have no talent for drawing, and who believe that they probably can never learn to draw.” This describes me exactly.
Drawing is something that I’ve always told myself “I’ll never be able to do that” which made it a perfect candidate for the Conquer List. The reality is that drawing should be no different from learning any other skill. My first inspiration in this regard came from Carol Dweck’s book “Mindset”, in which she defines a “Growth” mindset as being one which the mind always feels it can learn more about anything. Talent, as people have generally thought about it, is way over-hyped. Or is it? We shall see, my friends. We shall see.
