    What a riveting read I loved the approach of this self help book It was very detailed informative motivational focused on realistic approaches to tackling what you want to do in life I really resonated with the idea of “the plateau” staying on it rather than falling off or giving up when you seem to be making little progress in whatever field you’re trying to further yourself in I think in our culture with everything seeming “so easy” or “fast acting” it’s very discouraging to tackle taking on new things Often times we just don’t We find the excuse of “not having time” or fall into the trap of just wanting the acknowledgement of doing something new rather than really DOING IT I really encourage everyone to read this book It truly makes you think about how your mind approaches a new goal or activity encourages you to take the master’s path of true practice That comes with willingness to be or look foolish but it is always worth the effort “through thick thin” attitude that is admirable May we all be willing to fail get up keep going fail again continue on for our lives living in true dedication to our passions

    Why I Read this Book In order to be truly successful I knew I had to understand how to become a master of life and those things important to me There’s no better place to startReviewThere is nothing inspiring than pure excellence Have you ever witnessed someone do something incredibly well? How did it make you feel? Did it ever inspire you to go out and play that sport or that instrument or tackle that activity? If you’re anything like me I bet it did There is a funny thing about the influence that excellence has on us Unfortunately I have a feeling it has something to do with how rare it is in today’s worldMastery is the process and approach that people dedicate themselves to in order to achieve such superb results And just like success the journey for mastery is never over Have you ever listened to Tiger Woods in an interview after a victory? When they ask what’s next his response most often is “ practice” He is the best in the world at what he does yet he continues to push forward on the path to masteryGeorge Leonard has taken this rarely practiced art and laid it out to us in a format so simple most of us could read through it in a day or two Throughout the book he relates his personal path to the mastery of Aikido to that of all our individual journey’s You can certainly tell that he speaks from experienceWhen it comes to mastery it is not a uestion of should I master something but instead what should I master? So which area of your life will it be? In one way or another every one of us is an expert at the polar opposite of mastery–dabbling Working at something just long enough to get the hang of it but never long enough to endure the frustration and practice reuired to be any good let alone outstanding Most of us dabble in various recreational sports hobbies or even our career You may think there’s nothing wrong going through life as a dabbler but chances are you’re missing out on a great deal of fulfillment when you leave mastery behind Sometimes without knowing it the mediocre approach to the activities in life can really weigh you downLeonard is not saying we should seek to be masters in everything we do but we should choose our passions and master those Especially if it is something that takes up the majority of your time If we truly want to be outstanding then there is no other choiceWhat I really liked about this book is that it can be first used as an introduction to the topic of mastery but then it serves as a step by step guide to making mastery a part of your life The instruction starts with the reasons why mastery is so rarely practiced these days and the various things people default to instead Mastery takes extreme discipline and love for practice and improvement This is something our society rarely has the patience for with our “get it done yesterday” attitudeTony Robbins had a large influence on me reading this book and looking back it reminds me of a point he always makes when it comes to mastery To be truly outstanding and not just good or even great the difference is just two millimeters But it’s those two millimeters that make the world of difference Take the tangible example of the Olympics and Michael Phelps’ performance this year How close did he come to losing the butterfly finals? Just millimeters And despite the fact that the others were only millimeters behind him the victory was his and only his That’s mastery The discipline to take it to the absolute max–those final millimeters Whether it’s your career recreational sport or your family to sincerely be outstanding you must dedicate your life to one of mastery to experience real successGolf is another example In the beginning you see improvement relatively uickly At first you can’t even hold the club and then before you know it you can actually make contact and finish a hole The improvement curve is incredibly steep But then what happens? You stop getting better Or at least it feels that way Your score stops going down and it might even get a bit worse Then the frustration sets in And this is where most people call it uits They determine they’ll never be a good golfer and decide to move on to the next dabbling activity But for those determined to get better they do not let the frustration set in They know that this is a reuirement to get better To get to that next level you might be reuired to adjust your swing which will make you play worse in the near term but will greatly reward you if you stay dedicated to the practice in the long term And the process continues–improvement plateau digression to the next level The only way to truly press on in the path to mastery is to love what you’re doing and love the practice After all experience and practice is all life really is so you better start to enjoy itBy now we should all know that real success does not come uickly and in fact reuires the utmost dedication Welcome to the path to mastery There are few words out there that I’ve found to be synonymous with success Mastery is one of themLeonard gives us the tools to take what interests and excites us and to apply the keys to mastery to allow us unreal success Someone intently dedicated to success is just as strongly dedicated to mastery The journey is endless which in turn makes the fulfillment just as eternal as we live our lives As you read each chapter think about your mentors and heroes or the famous greats of the past Be it Bill Gates Warren Buffett Ben Franklin or whoever you look up to They all had something in common They were masters of their life’s passion and have been practicing since the beginningIt’s fine to dabble in things here and there but your true success and fulfillment comes from doing the absolute best you can Mastery is the perfect guide We all have our own mastery endeavors in our lives and I look forward to you using these tools to find and build yours and inspire others to find theirs There’s nothing rewardingLike most things in life it all starts with humble learning and instruction I encourage you to begin today Enjoy the practice Reading for Your Success

    George Leonard wrote this book for me I am not joking Every single word of it was meant for me It was one of those books that manifest exactly at the right time in your life to teach you something of immense value What I learnt from Mastery? To be a learner you've got to be willing to be a fool Are you willing to wear your white belt? My answer is Yes I am

    Some key take away points1 Mastery and learning in general is a lifelong journey 2 Success comes in spurts followed by large expanses of plateau; a practice for the enjoyment of the practice3 Practice n something you have something you are something you practice on a regular basis that is an integral part of your life pg 74 He does it just to enjoy himself4 All of us who are born without serious genetic defects are born geniuses pg 125 Why do we resist our own most constructive and creative impulses and suander our best energy on busywork? pg 120 6 What you already possess dwarves what anyone could ever give you; you are the culmination of amazing knowledge; The best way to describe your total creative capacity is to say that for all practical purposes it is infinite pg 167

    To love the plateau is to love the eternal now to enjoy the inevitablespurts of progress and the fruits of accomplishment then serenely to accept the new plateau that waits just beyond them To love the plateau is to love what is most essential and enduring in yourlife

    I don't much go for the self help genre and indeed the last half of this book is plagued with a lot of vacuous lists platitudes and musings However Mr Leonard's genuine commitment to Aikido and the years long exposure to Zen philosophy and practice that afforded him make the first half of the book uite life changing for the average Westerner Reading this book at this particular time felt like a drink of cold water in the desert for I have been thirsting after a practice that I could master After spending years in school environments I've been feeling a bit let down and disoriented by the lack of something to accomplish on a day to day basis in the 'real world' But Zen teaches that any little thing can be something to master and that mastery is a way of thought attitude and life The Chinese Zen master Layman P'ang c 740 808 AD wrote this My daily affairs are uite ordinary; but I'm in total harmony with them I don't hold on to anything don't reject any thing; nowhere an obstacle or conflict Who cares about wealth and honor? Even the poorest thing shines My miraculous power and spiritual activity drawing water and carrying woodThe way of mastery is NOT the way of complacency however for it stands opposite of those who dabble obsess and hack away at things Mastery demands patience commitment consistency focus peace of mind and faith This is good medicine Here are some of my favorite uotes in regards to victory over communism The victory is real and celebration is in order But so is some cautious self examination for there's perhaps no dangerous time for any society that its moment of greatest triumph pg 36 But recognition is often unsatisfying and fame is like seawater for the thirsty Love of your work willingness to stay with it even in the absence of extrinsic reward is good food and good drink pg 47 most of life is 'in between' pg 142
