This book describes the process that anybody can undergo to master a new skill. Mastery requires you to submit yourself to the process, avoiding shortcuts. You must envelop yourself in the present moment, learning to appreciate the ups and downs of the journey. Most of your time will be spent in a plateau while you repeatedly perform a drill, waiting for your brain to adapt. This process must be embraced and repeated.
“How do you best move toward mastery? To put it simply, you practice diligently, but you practice primarily for the sake of the practice itself.”
