“the path to mastery – becoming ever better at something you care about – is not lined with daisies and spanned by a rainbow”
- Daniel H. Pink, Drive
Back to Daniel Pink and his thoughts on Mastery! In the previous quotes on mastery (Mastery is a Mindset, Realizing Mastery), I discussed Daniel H. Pink’s basic thoughts on mastery and how this relates to our everyday lives. This was followed up by a quote on grit – how perseverance and passion play a large contributing role to our success.
This leads to discussion of Daniel H. Pink’s second Law of Mastery: Mastery is a Pain.
For today’s quote, I wanted to take a moment to temper expectations. Sometimes motivation is not about making us feel warm and fuzzy inside – but instead is about hardening us for the uphill fight, gritting our teeth, and running headlong into the fray.
