Message from Henry: Crash Course

Practice is a lifelong craft…it is the craft of living itself.

I recently heard about “Forty Years of Zen” — an outfit that promises a crash course in Zen training that they claim will give you the effects of forty years of practice in exchange for just five days of training (and a modest $15,000).

“There is no such thing as a crash course for a lifelong craft,” says Guardian sports journalist Bryan Armen Graham, writing on the Mayweather-McGregor fight.

McGregor, a world champion MMA fighter, took on world champion boxer Mayweather in Las Vegas last month. McGregor thought he could do a crash course in the art of boxing lasting just a few months. He was defeated TKO in the 10th round.

Practice is a lifelong craft…

In spite of the impatient utilitarianism fueling some efforts to sell lightning personality changes through practice, in the end, it remains a lifelong craft….

It is the craft of living itself.
