Mastery is Not What You Think…

As I continue to read and put to work the lessons and philosophy of the book I am currently reading, The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, I found today’s chapter to be very enlightening.  The topic was Mastery and Jeff went on to explain that Mastery is not a destination, nor an accomplished set of skills or tasks, but rather the first step we take towards our goal.

Baby Learning to WalkHe used the example of a baby learning to walk which I found quiet interesting and easy to understand at the same time.  Each day the baby would make another effort, falling short many times.  How many times did the baby fail to succeed?  Did the baby just give up, no of course not, the baby would continue to try and fail and try again, eventually succeeding.  The baby was in Mastery when it took the first step, not the last.

Jeff also goes on to talk about funerals at the end of the chapter and believe it or not, the baby and funerals all tie together to help explain Mastery and the road less traveled, or the Slight Edge towards success.

Today I put to use the skills and lessons I have been learning to date, and I had a very productive and fulfilling day!  How was your day?  Have you taken the first step?

Happy Cyber Monday!
