Cutting Corners

May 1, 2012

Our journey, our mountain climb begins with us as somewhat of a blank slate. We begin as we are created with our unique underlying precious value, which is left up to us to refine. We are just like a precious stone or gem that doesn’t come out of the ground exhibiting all of its potential beauty. Those stones and gems require refinement.

To refine ourselves requires making every step of our climb one with the purpose of making more of our potential beauty available. An athlete focuses on form. Sometimes it’s for injury prevention but mostly for the efficiency proper form provides for the improvement of their performance. Every move is made with the precision of purpose.

Too often we cut corners in much of what we do, rather than trying to get as close as we can to the perfect move. When we don’t get immediate negative reinforcement from cutting corners we cut more or more often. Consider this…. When you continue to cut corners, you will eventually be moving in circles.
