The Short Path and the Long Path

You found my old blog. Thanks for visiting! For my new writing, visit

The short path is to be told the answer, and be shown the way to get there. The problem is, will you understand why the right answer is right?

The long path is to explore yourself, feel your way toward an answer, and figure out what matters along the way. At the end, you thoroughly understand why the right answer works, but you may also have missed other right answers along the way.

The answer is to do both. That’s why this month, I’m reviewing all the skills I know, starting with level 1 techniques, and working up to whatever’s the most advanced technique I know.

Tip: I have to ask my trainers to test my basic skills, or they just assume I know it, even though I often don’t. So make sure you ask.
