Re: Talk to me about cycles in training
I'm not really sure it ever gets much better. The ups and downs have kept me guessing what's next since I started in 2000. I've heard it said that you're always a student no matter how far you progress. I certainly feel that way more often than I feel like I know what I'm doing.
I think it's not so much about holding onto things you've learned but about integrating what you learn into your own personal style and making it work for you consistently that's the most difficult part.
