Mastery"It resists definition yet can be instantly recognized. It comes in many varieties, yet follows certain unchanging laws. It brings rich rewards, yet is not really a goal or a destination but rather a process, a journey. We call this journey mastery, and tend to assume that it requires a special ticket available only to those born with exceptional abilities. But mastery isn't reserved for the supertalented or even for those who are fortunate enough to have gotten an early start. It's available to anyone who is willing to get on the path and stay on it--regardless of age, sex, or previous experience." - Mastery by George Leonard
George Leonard, an aikodo master, explains how the process of mastery will enable you to vault over the pitfalls of the quick fix to attain a higher lever of excellence and a deeper sense of satisfaction.
Here are some key points:
1. It's a never-ending journey.
2. You can either be on the mastery journey or on the quick-fix journey.
3. The mastery journey can begin whenever you decide to learn any new skill.
4. The mastery journey is simply practice; to practice diligently; but to practice primarily for the sake of practice.
