We heard some buzzin' around the cinemas 🤔 Wonder what's going on?
*cough HEAD TO THE TIMES CINEPLEX AT TIMES SQUARE cough*
For all you peeps who've seen our top secret project, we've got something special for you lot 🤫 Read on to know more about an exclusive giveaway we're having this month! 😉
But first, let's get down to business! 💪
We've all got our #MauTauCana (Wanna know how?) moment. Be it cooking, crafting or coding, finding the right avenue for you to learn new skills properly is not the easiest. Maybe we’re intimidated by the idea of starting something new or maybe it’s just stepping out of our comfort zone that’s scary. 😖
BenchLab is all about levelling up in terms of skill -- so here’s a few tricks on how to get started from us you might wanna try!
🔎 Break down the skill!
If you think of a skill from the bigger picture, it might sound intimidating. Maybe developing a business Instagram, for example.
Let’s dissect it and break it into smaller sub-skills:
Learning how to design the graphics of your business,
Learning how to take aesthetically pleasing photos for your IG feed, and
Learning how to market your business.
By doing this, the skill you’re trying to master won’t be so daunting anymore. You can also create a checklist of the sub-skills you need to reach the final goal! See how far you’ve come from the start of your journey in mastering a skill and use this to motivate yourself to go further. 😌
👩🏫 Join a workshop!
Find local skill-sharing platforms in your area for a guided learning journey with an expert in the field. Take the opportunity to also connect with fellow learners who are curious about the skill too.
BenchLab’s got you covered! 👍 Look out for a workshop fit for the skill you wanna learn from us here!
Hint hint: the skills we mentioned above are up for grabs this month!
Adobe Illustrator: Beginner to Advanced
Basic Photography & Portraitures
Social Media Marketing
You can also keep up with us on our Instagram account for new workshop announcements and exciting events from Team BenchLab here!
📆 Practice makes perfect!
After that, all it takes is practice. It’s gonna be a grind (HA!) from here onwards.
Plan out your week (or month) in advance and set the time to practice what you’ve learnt to master the skill. If you practice daily for even just 10 minutes, you’ll see how far you can get in a year! Step into uncharted territories now and you might just learn more about yourself too in this self-discovery journey.
Hope you find those tips helpful! And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for -- DRUMROLL! 🥁
