Learning: A Quick Guide

Mistakes-Precious Life Lessons


Mastering anything gives you an advantage. But the system doesn’t show you how to master anything. It expects you to know. And we don’t know, but you could.

In this century, it’s all about how — how can more quickly evolve from a novice to mastery. After all, you only have a limited amount of time and it makes sense to develop competencies more effectively and efficiently.

This page covers the three mastery learning levels and the roles allowing  you to:

  • Know,
  • Do, and
  • Teach

Rare indeed is the person who can do all three. But if you can, fame and fortune will be your best friend.



What Is Mastery Learning

“Only the curious will grow and only the resolute overcome the obstacles to learning.” — Eugene Wilson 

Mastery learning is the term we use to describe the basic skills helpful to building other skills. The first level is primarily cognitive.
The second level focuses on skill — the skills that accelerate the learning of certain application skills. In other words, most of us have never been taught how to learn. 

The Example of the Buddha

Someone who performed all three roles well was The Buddha. He formulated an easy to remember set of principles known as the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-Fold Path. For the beginners, you could study sutra; for the advanced, tantra.

And he was skilled—he mastered the deceptively simple skill of meditation, even though it took him many years of strenuous effort. And finally, he taught for about 40 years. Ultimately, he generated a social movement and a method of personal development that has flourished for 2600 years.

Mastering learning  gives you an advantage over your competition. Unfortunately, few teachers show you how to master anything —they just expect you to know.
