Do you know the tricks/
Every trade has tricks, learn them/
And become the best/
View this sleight of hand trick before you read the blog it will help you understand where I got my motivation for the Ha2ku and then the blog:
Do you know the tricks of your trade. To become the best we have to look at those that are the most successfully in our field, and learn from them. In my short life I have noticed that those who make the most progress understand the principle of tricks. They have found or created small short cuts, that if we pay attention to, we can duplicate and improve upon their success.
I need to stress that just finding tricks is not enough we need to practice our skills continuously, and begin adding the tricks that we learn to become the best. Many of us believe what we see. What I mean is that many of us see people that have mastered their skill and the tricks of their trade and think that what they are doing is easy. That is the farthest from the truth. Usually the ones that are the best are usually that hardest working. They just make it look easy and in some cases magical. So take some time and master your skill. look around and see who is the best. Ask them questions, watch what and how they do their work. Learn, grow and appear to be magical.
