The Legacee Mastery Model
Unfortunately, few teachers show you how to master anything —they just expect you to know how to do this. And while universities teach their professors how to do research, they are less focused on teaching how to teach.
For someone to learn skills means that you:
- Present theory one can turn into a skill
- Provide appropriate feedback
- Design a practice program
- Evaluate the learning to make sure that it is working.
Case: The Example of the Buddha
He formulated an easy-to-remember set of principles known as the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-Fold Path.
For the beginners, you could study sutra; for the advanced, tantra.
And he was skilled—he mastered the deceptively simple skill of meditation, even though it took him many years of strenuous effort. And finally, he taught for about 40 years.
Ultimately, he generated a social movement and a method of personal development that has flourished for 2600 years.
