When you're sharpening a sword, you sharpen the sword.

When you're not sharpening the sword, do what you like.
Sorry, I somehow missed that...

Agreed. Focus on what you do, live in the moment.


In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
