Shoot From the Hip

You know when this works best? After years of learning how to shoot properly.


Okay, maybe shooting isn't your thing, but you get the point. Writers who have learned their craft have better thematic aim when wingin' it on a short deadline.


Same with musicians filling in on the fly.


Or engineers being asked their spontaneous opinion about a malfunctioning project in real time.


Want to shoot from the hip at your canvas with more precision? Own your craft. Become the go-to creative in your field, in your community, in your family. Then, when you have to wing it? Yeah, you might actually hit the target.
