16 STEPS TO MASTER ANYTHING IN LIFE

THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS, BUT WITH THE RIGHT STRUCTURES IN PLACE, YOUR LIFE COULD BE ON TRACK TO MASTERY. 

How do you go from having zero skill to mastering your craft? It’s not just about putting in the hours. It’s about the right kind of practice and monitoring your progress along the way. It turns out any skill can be gained quickly through what I call progressive mastery.

1. Find your life’s task.

Many people have an intense feeling about what they’re best at. Too often, they’re driven away from it by other people. The first step is to trust yourself and aim your career path at what’s unique about you.

2.Rebel against the wrong path, and use that anger as motivation.

Mozart was a child prodigy on the piano. At a very young age, his domineering father toured Europe with him. When he discovered a talent for unique composition, his father suppressed it. It wasn’t until he rejected his father entirely that he became a master.We are often attracted to the wrong things, whether it be money, fame, or approval.

3.Get the right help

Eliciting support from others can greatly increase learning. Find someone you trust who has mastered the skill you’re trying to attain. And look beyond your immediate manager who has to evaluate you.

4.Time to Change Your Brain

It takes a lot of discipline and persistence to rewire your brain. Most people cannot last through the process, so they don’t reap the full advantage.Only hard working and disciplined people can make neurons wire together.

5. Stop multitasking.

Multitasking is a guilty pleasure we’ve all developed in the age of constant notifications and mobile applications. From checking our emails every ten minutes, to scrolling through our Instagram feed, to welcoming co-workers coming by our desk for a “five-minute break”: Multitasking can be one of the biggest hurdles preventing us from learning faster.

6.Put in Work

“For every two minutes of glamour, there are eight hours of hard work.” — Jessica Savitch

Once you identify the skill, brainstorm ways on how you will develop it. Effort activates your brain to establish new synaptic connections.It is wiser to focus on one skill until you gain mastery.

7.Repeat, repeat, repeat

This is the part where most of us struggle, and what many of us don’t want to hear is the rule that mastering anything faster requires practice. Learning requires frequency of and persistence in performing the same skill over and over again, until you can do it subconsciously, without having to think about it.

8. Commit to the long term

Asking someone “How long are you going to be doing this?” was the best predictor of how skilled that person would end up being.

9.To help you focus on your goal, start each day with the question: What is the ONE THING I am committed to completing today? 

This question forces you to prioritize, helps your brain focus better, and streamlines the work you need to do on that particular day, so that you don’t feel overwhelmed with making too many choices and instead you are free to focus on what’s most important to you.

10.Develop a strategy.

Goals are important, but so is developing your strategy. While you are focusing on what you want to do right now, always keep your eye on at least two steps ahead.

11.Work on Weakness

Identify the factors critical to success, and develop your strengths in those areas.

12.Measure your progress and get outside feedback.

Ask your friends and relatives to give there feedback.Apply those and rework your strategy.

13.Continually set higher goals so you keep on improving.

Start from small goals and gradually add on to that.After some months you will find a new you.

14.Acquire the skills you need to succeed.

You should work on developing your skills; not one, not two, but all of them.

15.Rely on trial and error more than anything.

16.Be patient

Too often, we approach a new skill with the attitude that we should nail it right out of the gate.The reality is that it takes much longer. It’s not going to happen overnight. It usually takes six months or more to develop a new skill.

And it may take longer for others to see and appreciate it.People around you will only notice 10% of every 100% change you make.

Sadly, you weren’t born an expert.But you can become one with practice and time. Start now. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve. Once you’ve reached mastery, you’ve got to keep practicing to stay sharp. Without regular practice, the slip from Master to Journeyman is all too easy.
