Working off of Lynn's post mentioning "mind," I think it is wise to also have the right kind of focus.
And what tool is it that we focus? What tool do we use to get a larger/smaller, clearer focus? What tool is distracted and focused on something other than training?

Again, IMHO, we find the must undisciplined tool we have; our learned ego identity, the mind.

The mind is a very useful tool in that hands of a real craftsman or artist. It can also be an extremely dangerous tool when in the hands of fear and pain.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
