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.
