mastery app

2. Mastery: Did you know that in order to become a master at a skill you must practice it for 10,000 hours? If you didn’t know, now you know. This app helps you become said skill master (while picking up multiple new ones along the way) in any category by turning the practiced hours into a tracking device. In addition to tracking how much time you spend developing specific skills, this app also turns that learning into a game that allows you to cash in rewards for non-skill-based activities like bingeing on a Netflix series. Now go conquer any and all the skills!
