The Process

“The key to pursuing excellence is to embrace an organic, long-term learning process, and not live in a shell of static, safe mediocrity. Usually, growth comes at the expense of comfort or safety.”

The Art Of Learning, Josh Waitzkin

When pursuing a new skill it is important to embrace the discomfort of taking your time to learn the process vs. pursuing what is expedient and will give you the shortcut to results. Taking on a new challenge will hurl you back into the pit of despair where only time and hard work can bring back your confidence. Embrace the growth mind-set and know that digging yourself out of the pit of despair is what will give life its zest and flavor. Avoid the fixed mindset where you will become discouraged if results do not come immediately.
