We are conditioned by an achievement-based and goal-orientated society to be focusing on the future and the arrival at the end, with no time for the steps in between, we do not want to be where we are, we want to be at the moment of mastering.
Mastering something is all about patience, focus, being in the moment and enjoying each of the steps. It is about now and wanting to be where we are at this moment. We can only ever do something now in this moment and the joy of doing leads to the mastering.
It is not about the goal itself.
Life is the means, not the end.
