While I love sports, (and no, chess is not a sport), I don't have outrageous talent in any discipline I have tried. Of the three sports that make up triathlon, cycling is probably my strongest and swimming my weakest, relative to the average triathlete.
But, the lack of natural taltent makes me work my brain and spirit that much harder, and allows me to really focus on mastering the disciplines slowly, and deliberately, with great great planning and foresight, rather than by gift. I consider myself a diligent, thoughtful type --- so mastery for me has to do with using these strengths to get better.
In previous blogs I wrote about :
Jumping from the Plateau
Swimming, Mastery and Customer Service
Mastery and the Plateau
Cycling in Kingston at 4:00am
These have helped bring me to the start of this blog.
