If you go to a basketball game, it may take you a few minutes to understand the rules, but pretty quickly you will figure out what’s happening. Sure, there might be niche rules here and there that leave you baffled, but you can still follow along. Furthermore, you don’t have to be an expert at basketball in order to enjoy watching others play.

When we are on the path to mastery, we tend to look in one direction: forward. We aren’t interested in looking anywhere else, because we are focused on improving. We look at the masters and try to figure out what we need to do to reach the same level as them.
You’re struggling to start that new project, to commit to a habit, or to continue the work you know is important. It’s difficult to get up in the morning and convince yourself to work. While you know in your mind that the work is important (and you’re happy once you’re done), each day is a new struggle.
