Bored black belts

My blog has a lot of advice for people looking to improve themselves in taiko (and other stuff, but mostly taiko).  Not all of it is easy to do, and some things take a lot of work.

I'm sure some people have read a post I've written and thought that it's easy for me because I'm younger/older/taller/been around longer/etc.

The other night, my sensei said, "If karate was easy, we'd all be black belts and we'd all be bored."

Sometimes the journey is more of a reward than the destination, and sometimes it's good to remember that if it's an easy journey to get to your goal, how much is that goal worth?
