The modern world clamours for attention and we shut it out. We are told to specialise rather than have a polymathic interest in things. Yet Nobel prize-winning scientists are 22 times more likely to practice some sort of art or craft than an ordinary academic scientist. Robert Twigger decided to investigate and recapture his childhood and childlike interest in everything. A micromastery can be anything from spinning a basketball on your finger, doing an Eskimo roll or making a perfect daiqueri – a small, contained and perfectable thing; an activity in a box that can lead to greater masteries. Through precise and often simple structures which allow for rapid and better learning, Twigger has found his true path to happiness.
