Tracking Mastery is a discussion of my journey of Mastery, a long term goal of a healthy lifestyle and a regular practice of a few activities. The first step is my development of these new habits, a step I first took in August, 2009. Although I’m working out much of this myself, my guide is the book Mastery by George Leonard. The early practice is rife with temptations and pitfalls, but this is normal and part of the process. This site describes my steps forward and back, my successes, failures, and the routine practice I am developing.
America, as George Leonard puts it, is at war with Mastery. This is a criticism, not an attack; skills in this country are not nurtured and the “quick fixes” are ever more popular. From time to time, this site will discuss the seditious media and advertising we are exposed to.
