  1. 10,000 HOURS TO MASTERY Master Prophet E. Bernard Jordan LESSON 2 THE LAWS OF MASTERY

  2. COMPETENCE “If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all.” (Michelangelo)

  3. COMPETENCE • At the heart of mastery lies competence. • You must pass through competence to reach mastery. • Competence is the skills demonstrated to meet the requirements of a specific task. • You may have the artistic talent to design a palace, but it will collapse unless you possess the competency to pour a foundation.

  4. COMPETENCE (CON’T) • Jesus did not come to his ministry until he was 30 years old. • Why? • He was already a master at being the Son of God. • He spent 30 years mastering being a man. • Jesus’ purpose was to reveal to us the God within each of us. • He had to become competent at being human, then become a master at it. • Thus, he invested 10,000 hours.

  5. COMPETENCE (CON’T) • Competence is the four-card hand we are dealt as we strive to reach the full potential God has placed in us. • Based on how we play that hand, we determine the level of risk that we will waste our potential. • Card #1: Conscious Competence -the things we know we’re good at. • Risk: Moderate: When we know we are competent at something, it is easy to fall into complacency. • “If you do only what you are good at, you will never become great.” (Jim Collins, Good to Great)

  6. COMPETENCE (CON’T) • Good is the enemy of great! • Card #2: Conscious Incompetence - what we know we’re not good at. • Risk: Low. Things we are compelled to work on because we see them daily. • Ex. When we see in the mirror that we are overweight, we are more likely to exercise and become slimmer. • To thine own self be true. • Leveraging conscious incompetence becomes a matter of overcoming self-delusion and rejecting false self-esteem.

  7. COMPETENCE (CON’T) • Card #3: Unconscious Competence -things we don’t realize we’re good at. • Risk: Moderate. If you don’t realize you’re good at something, you can waste time re-learning it or miss opportunities by not leveraging it. • Ex: Julia Child did not realize that she had a gift for French cooking, so it took her until she was in her 40’s to turn it into a career and become a star. • A mentor can perceive unconscious competencies and make us aware of them.

  8. COMPETENCE (CON’T) • Card #4: Unconscious Incompetence - what we don’t know we’re not good at. • Risk: High. Danger zone. Self-deception can convince you you’re good at something you’re not. • Ex: the writer who is convinced she has talent as a novelist and wastes 20 years producing a terrible novel, when she could have excelled as a journalist. • The hallmark of this is a profound lack of self-awareness stemming from a lack of introspection.

  9. COMPETENCE CURES • Cure 1: meditation, prayer and silence. Know thyself. • Cure 2: listen to wise counsel. Listen to professionals. • Do not mistake ubiquity for expertise! • Just because a blogger is widely read does not mean he is a good journalist. • Just because a pastor can fill a church, does not make him a true prophet. • Know whose counsel to take as to your competence. Select those with clear vision, honest words and the motivation to make you better.
