“The way to the goal is not to be measured! Of what importance are weeks, months, years?”

Complete awareness of the body and mind in relation to the goal even when the goal have been reached

“After winning the battle, tighten your helmet.”

“One should approach all activities and situations with the same sincerity, the same intensity, and the same awareness that one has with bow and arrow in hand.”

We live in a world obsessed with results. Instead, we should put that intensity, focus and sincerity into the process.

The point is to fall in love with the boredom of doing the work and embrace each piece of the process.
