IMHO, all techniques illustrate the underlying principles (enter and blend, taking balance, etc.), if you just focused on the technical proficiency of one technique you might miss the principles (common denominators) that make all techniques work and limit your growth potential.

IMHO, first learn the technqiues, then become concept/principle oriented, then just relax, breath, and have a really good time. The first two are "make" stages, the last is a "let".
