I heard somthing during the past week; “People who achieve mastery are often regular people that try harder.”
I really like this approach to mastery, because it makes more sense to me. If you do everything in your life to the best of your ability, 110%, you have escaped mediocrity and are on your way to mastery. But if you start cutting corners, even on things you figure are unimportant, you begin develop a habit of mediocrity. This will start to affect all parts of your life. Whereas before you did everything you could, until somthing was perfect, now you accept mediocrity as a option. You start to lie to yourself and say it doesn’t matter or that you’ll do it later.
It really does matters that you work your butt of in on everything your do. Not just the things you think matter the most.
