Mastery - A System That Never  Fails You

Mastery is the ongoing journey of consistently doing the right things, right, with the right people, at the right time, in your 21st century world!  Using Make "It" Happen Mastery™, you master day to day performance and realize remarkable and sustainable results. 

In his book Mastery:  The Keys To Success and Long-Term Fulfillment, George Leonard discusses mastery in the following way:

It resists definition, yet can be instantly recognized.  It comes in many varieties, yet follows certain unchangeable laws.  It brings rich rewards, yet is not really a goal or a destination but rather a process, a journey.  We call this journey mastery, and tend to assume that it requires a special ticket available only to those born with exceptional abilities.  But mastery isn't reserved for the supertalented or even for those who are fortunate enough to have gotten an early start.  It's available to anyone who is willing to get on the path and stay on it - regardless of age, sex, or previous experience.

Make "It" Happen Mastery, therefore, is not geared only for geniuses, or top level executives.  Make "It" Happen Mastery is available to anyone who is willing to invest in their own growth, and improve their ability to see "it" better, be "it" better, do "it" better, and make a difference. 

Leonard list five keys to Mastery:

  1. Surrender to your passion.  You won't become masterful at something that you aren't passionate about.  So choose something that really gets you excited, and allow yourself to go for it.

  2. Visualize the outcome.  Know what you are striving for, and let it motivate you.

  3. Get a guide.  You don't have to walk the path to Mastery alone!  Allow the Mastery Institute to be your guide, and you will experience the process of training, auditing, coaching, and mentoring along the way.  We will help you stay the course!

  4. Practice, practice, practice.  Malcolm Gladwell asserts that anyone wanting to become masterful must do that activity for at least 10,000 hours.  Don't give up if you don't start off as a masterful doer.  It takes lots of time and practice.  And don't forget to enjoy yourself along the way!

  5. Play the edge.  Be willing to take calculated risks, go beyond your normal comfort zone, and try new things!

In addition to implementing Leonard's mastery concepts, the path to mastery is built upon integrating the following concepts into your "real world":

A System That Never Fails You

Make "It" Happen Mastery™ is built upon integrating the PDSA process - Plan, Do, Study, Act.  PDSA is a cycle of continuous improvement whereby we plan what we want to do, do it, evaluate how it went, and decide whether to embrace it, adjust it, or abandon it.  And then we start over again. 

Following this process, and integrating it into your 21st century real world as part of Make "It" Happen Mastery™ does not ensure that you will never get undesirable results. Nor does it eliminate the frustrating periods known as "plateaus" when you keep trying to get better with limited results.   However, the system itself will never fail you because it directs you to the next step of the process when something does turn out to be less than desired.  Mistakes and frustration don't make a failure - failing to learn from mistakes and frustration makes a failure!  PDSA and Make "It" Happen Mastery™ challenge to you continuously improve and learn from mistakes, thereby becoming ever more successful!

Make "It" Happen Mastery™ is a great tool for organizations and individuals looking to improve their quality of management today, and pave a successful road to the future. To learn more about how you can embark upon this journey, browse our 4 value-added services below.
