Do you guys know the joke about the annual comedian's dinner where they tell jokes by calling out numbers.

I like Jun's numbers 1, 4, 5, and 7.

Along similar lines, I purchased this poster and hung it above my desk at lab. For those who don't feel like clicking on the link, it says, "If you can't learn to do something well, learn to enjoy doing it poorly."

I regularly find myself telling friends: "Enjoying yourself is a skill. It takes practice, like playing the violin. You have to practice every day, and you have to accept that, when you start, modest goals can help to keep you motivated." I learned this form AiKiDo, somehow, although I'm not sure how. Perhaps because AiKiDo taught me about process and goal.

Yours in Aiki
