Jack Covert Selects: Optimism and Mastery

"More than anything, I associate mastery with optimism. It's the feeling at the start of a project when I believe that my whole career has been preparation for this moment and I am saying "Okay, let's begin. Now I am ready." Of course, you're never one hundred percent ready, but that's a part of mastery, too: It masks the insecurities and the gaps in techniques and let's you believe you are capable of anything."
