Content, Are We?

I asked a simple question at the last seminar:

"How much has everyone improved in the year since we last got together?"

I've practiced the same basics everyday for decades.

Everyday Rain or shine. Summer, winter, spring and fall. Over and over and over.............................................

And I'm never satisfied. I'm not fast enough, I don't hit hard enough, my basic "technique" is NOT at all satisfactory.

I don't train a lot of "techniques". But, I train those "techniques" a lot.

Basic fundamental stuff. That's all I can handle.

Over and over and over and over and over................................

Know why?

Because I'm NEVER satisfied. I'm not fast enough, I don't hit hard enough, my basic "technique" is NOT at all satisfactory.

Nope! I'm NEVER happy.

It might be nice to "do" more advanced, complex, and exotic stuff.

But personally I can't justify it. I see far too much room for improvement in just the most basic fundamental stuff.

Because I'm never satisfied. I'm not fast enough, I don't hit hard enough, my basic "technique" is NOT at all satisfactory.

I guess the problem is that I don't have a clue as to when these basics become "good" enough. Seems to me I could spend the rest of my life constantly working at improving just a handful of solid basics and still NEVER be satisfied. Never be fast enough, never hit hard enough.

Damn. Consigned to an existence of fundamental basics. Well, I guess I'm just one of the unlucky few.
