Getting it right, performing when the time comes, getting it down, it all feels great, but it's nothing more than hard work and sweat!

Yea, I can hear you saying that it's not how hard you work but how smart you work....yea right......but it's true, putting hard work into smart work is the combo that's needed.

If you just work hard without working smart, then it's just hard work, but hard work and smart work can really make a big success.

Do ikkyo 1,000 times in a row, that's hard work, but do it mindlessly and that's not smart!

Think about it each time you do it. Do it as if it were the very first time everytime, but put that same amount of energy you put into the class the first day of class, and you'll be working smart, again.

Good luck.
