Avoid The “Quick Fix” Mentality

If somebody were to tell you that by taking a tablet or a couple of lessons, you would become an accomplished performance violinist or a black-belt Aikido Sensei, would you think him? -Luigi Fontana [1]

Itzhak Perlman.

This one resonated with me for a couple of reasons. For one, I studied Aikido for a couple of years back in my forties. After a few hundred hours of practice, I seemed like I was a sophisticated newbie. The gap between where I was and proficiency was still tremendous.

There is a story about the terrific violinist Itzhak Perlman After a performance, a fan came up to him and said “that was fantastic, I d offer my life to be able to play like you”. He replied “Madam, I did”.
