Some time in the past I learned to “practice the fundamentals”. This advice or maybe it was a hard-bitten lesson to my hard head, anyway the rule has followed me through all aspects of my life.
If you want to get good at something, then practice the fundamentals. Talent will take you only so far. Sometimes luck will take you further than talent. The basics make the game and in my case make the Art.
The fundamentals are the framework for your razzle-dazzle.
I learned to pay my dues. Own my mistakes. Learn and move on. Accept my successes. Learn and move on.
No one holds my leash.
