“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.

 

Inspirational quotes from today’s interview:

“The best breakthroughs in my life have happened when I hit the pause button.” — Brian Buffini

“Never has there been a time when distraction has undermined the process of mastery.” — Brian Buffini

“Mastery is a journey, and the master must have the courage to risk failure.” — George Leonard

“If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all.” — Michelangelo

“At the heart of it, mastery is staying on the path.” — George Leonard

“Practicing when you seem to be getting nowhere is mastery” — Brian Buffini

“What’s the difference between the master and the beginner? The master has failed more times the beginner has ever tried.” — Brian Buffini

“If you want to go fast, you have got to slow down.” — Brian Buffini

“On the path to mastery, results aren’t everything, the path is everything.” — Brian Buffini

“Excellence is the result of always trying to do better.” — Pat Riley

“Perfectionism is the mother of procrastination.” — Brian Buffini

“There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” — Bruce Lee

“Practice slowly. If you learn something slowly, you forget it slowly. If you learn something quickly, you forget it immediately.” — Itzhak Perlman
