A micromastery is a self-contained unit of doing – complete in itself but connected to a greater field.
You can perfect that single thing or move on to bigger things – or you can do both.
A micromastery is repeatable and has a successful payoff.
It is pleasing in and of itself.
It’s the way we learn as kids.
You never absorb all the fundamentals straight away – you learn one cool thing then another.
You learn a 360 on a skateboard or how to make a crystal radio.
Hungarian psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi has written about ‘flow’ – a state in which time seems to be suspended because our interest and involvement in what we’re doing are so great.
A micromastery – because it is repeatable without being repetitious – has all the elements that allow us to enter a flow state – which produces great contentment and enhances physical and mental health.
