Challenge your assumptions to avoid making mistakes

Posted on May 31, 2012 by



Did you ever go through a slump for getting voice over work, and soon find yourself saying, “This makes me suspicious” or “Something is not right here”?

Yet, you really have no tangible proof as to whether or not what you assume is happening…is an actual reality. The ‘muscle memory’ created by such a practice or thought process may help your career with the equal chance of hurting it. Check this post from Adam Dachis at Lifehacker called:

“Challenge Your Assumptions to Avoid Making Frequent Mistakes”

He explains within, “The saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” exists because the more we do something the more it gets lodged in our memories, regardless of whether we do it well or not, and those habits can be hard to change.” With much of online behavior taking place without explanation because sometimes…well…people do not want to explain what they do, it can be very challenging not to assume.
