“We cannot expect to touch excellence if ‘going through the motions’ is the norm of our lives. On the other hand, if deep, fluid presence becomes second nature, then life, art and learning take on a richness that will continually surprise and delight. Those who excel are those who maximize each moment’s creative potential - for these masters of living, presence in the day to day learning process is akin to that purity of focus others dream of achieving in rare climatic moments when everything is on the line. 

The secret is that everything is always on the line.  The more present we are at practice, the more present we will be in competition, in the boardroom, at the exam, the operating table, the big stage.  If we have any hope of attaining excellence, let alone of showing what we’ve got under pressure, we have to be prepared by a lifestyle of reinforcement. Presence must be like breathing.” - Josh Waitzkin
