“Mastery is about bringing your gifts to the outside.” — Brian Buffini

Many of us are so focused on achieving that we live in fast-forward; that is, we focus on “once I get there…” instead of what’s in front of us right now. Add distractions into the mix and it becomes that much more difficult to embark on the journey to mastery. But, don’t give up; instead, hit the “pause” button. In this episode Brian Buffini delves into the concept of mastery. Using George Leonard’s best-selling book, Mastery as a guide, Brian outlines what mastery is, what it isn’t and how to avoid the pitfalls along the way. You’ll learn what mastery means, why true mastery is contrary to our culture of quick fixes, how slowing down is essential to learning and growing, and why plateaus are essential to progress. Hit “pause” in your life and get inspired to rethink everything you know about mastery.
