Repetition

Repetition is the first law of learning. Remember when you were a child and were learning to write, read or tie your shoes? You had to do  it over and over and over again. Any one who has mastered their craft, has repeatedly gone over their performance. It is the key to mastery. When baseball players are in the minors they practice hitting the ball, catching and running the bases. When they reach the majors they practice, hitting the ball, catching and running the bases. Nothing new, just repetition. In the movie The Karate Kid, the handy man/martial arts master agreed to teach a young boy this lesson. Wax on, wax off, over and over and over again. The masters make it look so easy and flawless.
Watch an ice skater, or basketball player who are performing with ease and grace. All they did was practice and repetition of their art form.
You can become the master of your life and live each day with peace, serenity and ease. Just like in the movie Ground Hog Day were Phil Connors the weatherman is reliving the same day over and over again. Each day we are given the opportunity to do it over again. Repetition is the first law of learning, so take this day and keep it simple.
Wax on, wax off.
