It’s a topic that I think about all of the time.
If I’m being honest, I started thinking about mastery after reading the article “The Best Coaching Advice You’ll Ever Get, and Probably Ignore.“
Since then, I’ve learned that:
- mastery is a long, long process
- mastery is a personal journey
- measuring mastery is near impossible
I’ve also learned that mastery should not be confused with perfection.
But most importantly, I’ve learned that using mastery as a Northstar can help me keep moving in the right direction.
So, here are ten thoughts on mastery that help guide me and might help you too:
- Commit yourself to the process.
- Put in the time.
- Develop the necessary skills.
- Hold yourself accountable.
- Focus on the details.
- Don’t just go through the motions.
- Be passionate when you’re delivering your message.
- Ignore distractions.
- Study the people you respect.
- Become obsessed.
“You must understand the following: In order to master a field, you must love the subject and feel a profound connection to it. Your interest must transcend the field itself and border on the religious.” Robert Greene, Mastery
