Craft Notes: Mastery

Pablo Casals in Deep Practice

 Choose a life of Growth:
       It's said that when Spanish composer and cellist Pablo Casals was in the final years of his life, a young reporter asked him " Mr. Casals, you are 95 years old and the greatest cellist that ever lived. Why do you still practice 6 hours a day?" What was Casals answer? "Because I think I'm making progress". That's the kind of dedication to continual growth that you should have. The people that reach their potential no matter what their profession or background, think in terms of improvement.
