Sometimes I see posts from people asking about what they need to learn to get to this point or that point. I've been guilty of thinking too far ahead as well. I think when we all pick up the instrument, it's so easy to get overly-eager and lose focus. For what it's worth, there's an old Chinese proverb that I keep in mind whenever I lose focus. I just thought I'd share it, and maybe some people will like it as much as I do!
