    1. A short and motivating book on how giving yourself permission to just do, and slowly get better has a meaningful impact on one's confidence and competence. It is unlikely one will find all the micromastery examples compelling, but you just need one to start the virtuous cycle.___Micromasteries - self-contained unit of doing, complete in itself but connected to a bigger field. E.g.: Cooking an omelette. It is repeatable and has a success payoff. It is pleasing in and of itself.The right teacher d [...]

    2. Micromastery: Learn Small, Learn Fast and Find the Hidden Path to Happiness (2017) by Robert Twigger is a book that describes why you should learn small skills that appeal to you quickly and then improve on them.The book has an interesting idea, namely that we often say we want to learn big, time consuming things that take ages to do but then never really undertake these things because they are often too hard and don't provide rewards for our learning early enough. There is definitely something [...]

    3. Helped me prioritize what to do and how to do them fast. We aren't meant to learn like specialists, a start is a beginning. The book also made me realize that the first step is most important, mastering everything to the maximum isn’t that important.

    4. I am reallly mixed on that book. On the one hand the writing is farily pleasant and it reads well, it's got a positive, lovely message On the other hand I feel that the message to so simple that I had already understood it when I read reviews and summaries online before buying it: learn a small task really well, it could lead you to master the whole thing, and in any case it'll make you happier.The author makes sure to develop this idea on and on and to add anecdotes about famous scientists, wri [...]

    5. I attended the Bridport Literary Festival and heard Robert speak, it was very inspiring and the book did not disappoint. It resonated so strongly with me and has opened my eyes to why over the last three years, I've learned to weld, bought a sewing machine, renovated camper vans and have written and published one novel, (and busy writing the second). On reading the book, I've already started to make more omelettes, improve my handwriting, practise zen circles with the aim of improving my drawing [...]

    6. I'm not one for describing books as 'inspiring', but this really is. The premise is simple, that we can enjoy life more by acquiring and mastering discrete skills - but more importantly it's a powerful rejoinder to the idea that we have to specialise at one thing and one thing only.

    7. I really like the idea of micro mastery and the book has a lot of examples. Somehow that also makes the book a bit repetetive and long winded.

    8. Ideas can seem so simple they pass me by as too obvious. That was so with Micromastery. It needs some practice.

    9. Must admit I didn't read all of it, and many of the skills presented weren't interesting to me. Still, the whole concept and approach is inspiring, which is why I still give it four stars.
