Knowing the Difference Between Your Gifts and Your Talents

Whether you shoot video or photographs, you're a creator, and regardless of how long you've been doing it, you'll always want to get better. If you have the desire to grow either your audience or your skills, this video contains some great information.

In this video, Chris Do (YouTube channel The Futur), interviews YouTube creator Unmesh Dinda (YouTube channel PiXimperfect) about how he grew his YouTube channel to 1.5 million subscribers. Dinda specializes in teaching Photoshop and Lightroom. The video is much more than just how to get more subscribers; it's about finding out what you're good at and how to get better at it.

What really impressed me about this video was how Dinda explains that everyone has gifts and talents and that there's a difference between them. Dinda also explains what makes a good teacher and how the type of medium directs his approach to content creation.

Do and Dinda also discuss the balance of quantity versus quality, workflow optimization, knowing your audience, and other great advice for other creators in a question and answer session at the end of the video.

I've followed Dinda for quite some time, and I've always appreciated how well he explains even highly technical things. Check out this video, you won't be disappointed.

I don’t need to know the difference. I have no gifts and certainly no talents.

LOL me too, but that makes us special. The peak of mediocrity is a tough gig.

Unmesh is one of my favorite Youtubers of all time. I've learned so much from him I feel like I owe him money.

This bro deserves all the success in the world. His love and ability to teach everyone are above that of others. When he says, "Let's keep creating." he teaches us how to create in a clear and concise and still be true to our vision. Adobe should recognize his gifts, talents and his contribution to their brand. Adobe, please bring him back to Adobe MAX 2020. His class was the BEST!

We all have gifts and talents. But if you are not good at something - you should just use some help. For example, I am using this service when I need writing help. There is nothing wrong with it.
