My father owned and operated and auto body shop, and as a 10-12 year old kid, I would watch him work on cars...
One important lesson that I learned from my father.
"Son, you need to WATCH at first...You can learn so much just by observing and paying attention to the process."
He said, "Don't pick up any tools yet. Just watch, and understand why I'm doing, what I'm doing..."
"Watch and learn from me first. Learn the A-Z step-by-step process and techniques from a single instructor...
Not from my partner Big Tony, not from Frank over at the body shop across the street.
Once you understand and get good at one style of getting the job done,
then go out and learn from others to gain additional tactics and strategies so you can mix them in with your own.
This way, won't get confused and you'll know what the complete process looks like.
Later in life, I started to have a fascination with martial arts, and in Bruce Lee.
I read all of Bruce's books, I even enrolled in classes that taught the Jeet Kun Do style of martial art that Bruce later developed, created, and taught during his short life.
And what did I discover?
