Studying hard always helps somewhat! And when it comes to practical procedures..? The more you practice, the better and more skillful you get at them. Although there will always be people who NATURALLY have more of a knack for certain things than others... Like personally, I've always been very good at writing essays and such, for instance. I love words, and I tend to think in a very verbal way. But I'm quite clumsy, so I struggled a LOT with P.E. as a kid! And my memory is usually good, but I'm pretty sh*t at remembering numbers.. Because I never THINK in numbers! Although I'm otherwise okay with math. I'm not AMAZING at it. But.. I'm okay, at least.
But yeah... As a nursing student, I have been noticing that you get better at things, over time! Like... I was NEVER very gifted with having a perfect overview of things, personally. I can be naturally quite one-track-minded and tunnel vision-y... But during the course of my studies, I have REALLY grown, and changed, and progressed, in that department! To the point that I now can have many more eyes, in many more places, and I usually know what's being done, and what needs to be done... :-P Plus I've gotten better at recognizing the needs of my patients. And although, like I said, I am naturally quite clumsy..? I've really gotten LOADS better with nursing procedures that I've been practicing, repeatedly! (Although there are still some where I decidedly need more practice.) But with someone who's more of a natural, as far as that stuff is concerned, for instance..? Maybe they could get pretty good at something after, say, 5 or so tries! While I might need 20 or more, to really get it into my system. So.. we've got different starting points! And it takes more for some people to get good at something! But if we want it enough..? We can still always improve! And having a good sense of honesty, humility and self-insight, so that you KNOW in which areas you're still somewhat lacking, and what you need to keep practicing..? Really helps too, I find. :)
