Embracing Fundamentals to Master Your Craft – Daily Quote 


After a hiatus, I have restarted my yoga discipline. In the past, I had progressed to headstands, handstands, bow, and pigeon poses. I didn’t expect my practice relaunch to start at that level. I began with breathwork and basics asanas. From experience, I know I need to come to the mat embracing a beginner’s attitude, concentrating on breathing, listening to my body and using proper form. By focusing on tiny improvements, I trust I will make progress.

My yoga routine reminds me success lives in the details. To succeed, I must focus on fundamentals. They feel trivial, boring and unimportant. If you want to be a master in your field just getting things accomplished won’t get you there unless you are mastering essential procedures. The key is being disciplined and submitting to the promise of growth.

As a writer, I am constantly working on my craft. I realized I should emulate the same thought process I use in my yoga practice. I concentrate on studying the essentials, doing my best work daily and hoping to see small steps forward each time I study.

Every job has its own fundamentals. How will you master yours?


Keep on writing.

  1. Excellent point. Like your yoga, I have been starting to do more stretching and took a cycling class. Luckily, my daughter was the instructor, so she was training me on good technique, not easy, my knees hurt, but she says it has to do with proper form.

    I think I wanted to do the Mud Run too, because it is a way of pushing myself out of my comfort zone. This proves and reminds myself that there is a champion within, but as you mentioned it takes hard work and getting out of the comfort zone.

    So… what pose of yoga will you do today? My twin brother used to stand on his head all the time and turn his eyelids out to be goofy. My mother got tired of that and told him if he kept doing that, they would stay that way… luckily, he believed her and stopped doing the eye lid thing. LOL Siblings!

    Have a GREAT day!

    • Siblings can be so funny.

      Doing something well really comes down to mastering the basics. I had forgotten about it until I rebooted my yoga practice.

      Glad you are pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. I bet you learn things you never expected… I know I have already 🙂
