“Mastery” – 3 principles

Attainment of “Mastery” is bound by the following three principles.

Dan Pink’s book Drive makes a mention of the same.

1) Mastety is a “Mindset” – Continuity in excellence needs a learning mindset rather than a performane mindset

2) Mastery involves “Pain“- Excelling in a particular field needs a lot of personal sacrifices.

3) Mastery always follows an “Asymptotic” pattern – Attainment of mastery will never touch the ceiling , even though the final destination may seem very near.
