03 Jan Can You Be Great?

This is a bold and different kind of post, unlike anything I've ever written. But the message is important and it's the perfect time of year to write this. It's not meant to motivate or inspire, but to aspire (you'll see what I mean). This isn't motivational fluff, it's a shift in mindset.

Honestly, I never understood the importance of technique or pursuing the path to mastery. Today, it's a completely different story and I want to share with you a lesson I wish I knew years ago.
