    If you could become an expert of something overnight magically, what would you choose?

    Hypothetically off course, if you could choose a form of art or absolutely any area of knowledge, what would you choose? Would you become a great dancer, composer, writer, musician... or you'll refuse to choose anything?

    Writing musical scores, playing all kinds of instruments. I have all kinds of music in my head but do not have the ability to write a score or play any of the instruments expertly.

    Would their be side effects? If not, then I would take the chance in a heartbeat. I'd want to be an expert in explaining things in a way people understand. Right now I just bumble along, revising and revising until it finally makes sense. I'd like to get it right the first time around.

      Got some excellent answers for this, but chose yours as best, coz of your diligence. Even after a magical wish, you still are ready to put in effort of making someone understand. And thus, sooner or later, your wish would come true smile

    This is a tough one to answer- would one chose something resourceful that could potentially secure them a career? Or maybe something they've always dreamed of doing?
    I've always wanted to play the guitar, but being a college student and a mother, sitting down to play hours at a time per day is nearly impossible. I've learned perhaps 2 or 3 simple songs to play for my daughter but mastering all the skills takes years of practice. Being able to speed up that process would be wonderful.

    I would want to be an expert in money management! LOL!  I would love to be able to have money instead of struggling to get by, and yes that would take magic for me to become an expert in because money burns holes in my pockets and I just love to spend it!

    I've always wanted to be able to draw, sketch, paint but never had any talent for this. I really admire the work of artists, it's awesome to me how they make it look so easy.

    On the more boring side. I would love to be an expert speller of words. I'm crap at spelling and have to continuely look up dictionaries or have longs lists of words at my side when writing - and I still get them wrong!!

    Hmmm excellent question. I would love to be an expert at writing and painting. Ooh and singing- I can't sing at all, in fact I am terrible, but I admire people who can. But really, if I had to choose, then I would become an expert at understanding and helping people. I would have the utmost compassion yet expert knowledge of human beings and know just how to help them.

    I would love to be an expert on terrorism intelligence and prevention. It is a dream job that is proving very difficult to accomplish and it would be so easy to go to sleep one night, waking up the next morning as a know-it-all smile
