Build Mastery Skill
Build mastery by doing things we enjoy. Whether it is reading, cooking, cleaning, fixing a car, working a cross word puzzle, or playing a musical instrument. Learn as much as you can about the subject in order to be well versed. Discuss what you have learned and write about what you have learned. Practice these things to build mastery and in time we feel competent.
Try Something New
Anyone can master a new recipe and with practice, it can become a family favorite. Finding a recipe for a dish that the family will enjoy is the first part of the challenge. Understanding the components of the recipe and how to follow the steps is next. If you are unsure, ask others who enjoy cooking or google the answer. Collect the ingredients and give the recipe a whirl. Expect mistakes, because mistakes help us to learn. Seek help when you are not sure about how to proceed.
Washing the dishes and doing the laundry are thankless jobs, yet when they are complete and are done well, we can feel good that the task is complete. Reading a book to a young child and finding joy in sharing that time, is also considered building mastery in relationship building. Playing a board game with friends, or frisbee, or any other sport, can also be part of building a relationship which involves mastery.
Give Yourself Credit
An important ingredient in this skill building is to remember to give ourselves credit for building mastery. We often let the day go as if we accomplished nothing at all. Give yourself credit for all that you accomplished at days end.
