Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good.

Opening your mind

To fully experience the joy of life, we need to maintain an open mind. An open mind is curious and enjoys testing its limits. The open mind does not seek approval, but instead appreciates genuine feedback and constructive criticism from others. The open mind enjoys exercising its powers, and constantly wonders about the unknown. And the open mind is willing to take calculated risks.

An open mind never takes anything for granted, and is not burdened by limiting assumptions. In fact, an open mind recognizes limits as temporary and works to find ways around them.

— Ralph Marston
