There’s a difference between focusing on results, and focusing on mechanics.
If you’re focused on results, you do what works right now. Then you tweak it so it works a little better.
If you’re focused on mechanics — how magick works — you don’t spend much time tweaking. Instead, you disassemble what works right now, figure out how each step works, then reassemble it into something new.
Making something new requires a lot of parts. Understanding one step probably won’t help. So you won’t see much immediate improvement of your results. But if you stick with it and understand all the steps, you’ll be able to make a new technique, and you’ll see a big jump in results.
Mechanics is a longer path. But it leads to a more interesting and useful place.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
