In the last, 3rd part we discussed you as being a key factor in the chain to achieve mastery; you, your environment and potentially adding money as an "enhancer" when it comes to learning.
Several readers have been giving their feedback and thoughts in our Café on the first, second and third parts and I invite you to do so as well, after you have read these. Learning together is so much more enjoyable and it plays a big part of what our community is all about.
