Lifetime Mastery

Updated: May 24, 2021

This is purposely a bit vague. Does it mean:

  • A lifetime full of mastery?

  • Mastering your life? From childhood? Can we start later?

  • Figuring out how to arrange your life so that you can master something important?

As I'm writing this, I'm personally leaning towards mastering my life-- with a late start.

Whether you are in the middle of a professional career or at the end of a successful career or just now deciding that you want more than you currently have, you might be one of millions wondering if all this effort is moving you in the actual direction you want.

I provided for my family, enjoyed good success as a software developer for decades, learned a lot cool stuff, played and practiced a lot of golf, basically lived a very productive and enjoyable life.

I'm not old, by any means (closing in on 60). I'm not rich... I have enough to live very frugally until social security. By today's metrics, I'm not sure too many would call me "successful". Whatever... :)

My "gap year(s)" will be starting soon. My employer is figuring out how to transition away from me to a younger, more energetic, less curmudgeonly developer. We are both very happy with each other and both working to be equitable. I'm a lucky man to have finished my career here.

During my "gap year(s)", I'll be focusing on:

  • Developing my own apps for my own enjoyment and possible profit.

  • Seeing how good I can get at golf with 1 - 5 clubs and lots of practice.

  • Learning and writing about mastery... something I've been consumed with for most of my life.

The first two will be part of my personal blog ( The last one, all of the learning and writing, will be here.

I hope that readers can find some meaning as I progress. Ideas that can help them set themselves up for whatever mastery means to them.
