The secret to getting really, really good at something

Recently my husband and I were talking about the human will to mastery. The conversation started as a discussion of the attraction people have toward precision tools as they advance in a craft. For instance, I was noting how, as I get deeper and deeper into my knitting hobby, I get pickier about the needles I use, and I find I’m accumulating a variety of little tools (row counters, cable needles, stitch holders, needle sizers) that I didn’t even know about – and wouldn’t have understood the use of – when I was starting out.
