One of the most important aspects of achieving success is building a roadmap to get there. This mastery map is a simplified flowchart that defines the goal you’ve set for yourself, and it outlines both the steps you need to take toward the goal and the potential roadblocks that could prevent you from getting there.
The exercise of drawing out your own mastery map might remind you of being in school, but in my experience the simple act of sketching it out over the course of ten or fifteen minutes has had a transformative effect on many of my clients.
At the top of the map, write your ultimate goal. Maybe it’s to lose thirty pounds or get onto the ballot for your local school board election twelve months from now. Then, fill in the rest of the boxes accordingly.
