I’ve always hated the word mastery. It implies there is nothing left to learn.
I can’t think of any task that can be mastered. You can get good at something and be the best at something. But I don’t think anyone can say they’ve mastered it.
Michael Jordan was one of the greatest basketball players of all time. But he wasn’t the perfect player. He had flaws in his game that he tried to improve.
When I worked in sales, I was regularly at the top of the team for most sales. But I never stopped trying to evolve and better myself as a salesperson.
I would update my scripts. I would try lines out like a comedian at a comedy club. If it worked, I kept using it. If it didn’t, then I’d ditch it.
I never once thought I had mastered sales, no matter how good my conversion was or how many units I sold.
You might be the best at what you do. You may be recognised as the top performer in your division. But if you’re not asking yourself what’s next to improve on, then it won’t be long before you start seeing your performance going backwards.
