Pursuits are the infinite games we play which involve clear feedback and trackable progress.
Playing slot machines can never be a pursui because there’s no way to get better at it; over time, you’re guaranteed to lose.
However, playing poker could be a pursuit. There are a set of skills involved which can be honed over time with practice.
Pursuits are not habits, but they can involve habitual practice.
Mixed Martial Arts is a pursuit which benefits greatly from a habitual routine.
Pursuits are the goals we set which never end.
They’re the things which over time we wish to master. Which we do for the sake of continuing to do them.
Nobody ever wakes up and realises that they’ve mastered a pursuit.
Mastery is not a destination, it’s a practice.
