Core Philosophy - Do the work!
- Do you find it hard to relax?
- Would you rather be DOING something?
- I value work ethic.
- I believe in the power of practice.
- Mastery is seeking to improve all aspects of your life.
- Learning is not a linear process.
- There is no such thing as perfection.
- Commitment to the arts and to each other is in years not days.
