Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment
by George Leonard

Let‘s begin at the beginning: what exactly is Mastery? Mastery is an individual‘s intense dedication to their craft. Mastery doesn‘t discriminate. Every industry has room for new masters—it doesn‘t matter whether you want to become a master in the board room or on the football field. Mastery is not a matter of domain, it‘s a matter of dedication.

A true master is a person who has developed (and continues to develop) higher and higher levels of skill, prowess, dexterity, and deftness over their craft. A master is someone who has a deep and intuitive grasp of their work—someone who possesses a level of expertise worth marveling over—and yet still continues practicing the fundamentals of their craft. These are the qualities of a master. And if you want these qualities, you should know they aren‘t easily acquired. They require us to approach our work with love and dedication—both in times of pleasure and in times of pain.

Mastery is not a destination—it‘s a lifelong practice. Although the day may come when you realize you have become a master of your craft, it isn‘t an outcome you become overly focused on. It‘s not an achievement—it‘s a way of life.

The Big Ideas we‘ve gathered from this book—Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment by George Leonard—will teach you some of the most important principles you‘ll need in order to begin your very own path to mastery.

The author of the book, George Leonard, discovered the power of mastery through martial arts (specifically, aikido). Leonard found that examining the teaching styles of great aikido masters, along with their students‘ learning styles and progress was an excellent way to key-in on the aspects that advance and hinder long-term learning and performance.

After learning what it takes to gain mastery within the field of aikido, Leonard cross-referenced his learnings across various other fields and domains, and he came to a surprisingly simple conclusion: The essential elements of any master‘s journey—the core fundamentals to follow, what pitfalls to expect, and what tools you need to succeed—are all generally the same! Different people take different routes to mastery, but they‘re all walking in the same direction... Wanna walk with them? Get ready to learn how.


Drawing on Zen philosophy and his expertise in the martial art of aikido, best-selling author George Leonard shows how the process of mastery can help us attain a higher level of excellence and a deeper sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in our daily lives.
