Today was a rush. I’m taking a beginner class in West Coast Swing and the instructor invited me to stay and follow in the intermediate class. The difficulty was just right - everything was new, but if I really concentrated I could get the footwork mostly right and use my general dance skills to follow the movement as a whole.
Deep knowlege is a great thing. When I was younger, I never really had the patience to cultivate it. Now that I’m older, I want to get good at a few things instead of being a dillitant.
For me, though, it is a bit of a grind to get there. Beginner gains are a rush - getting noticibly better in a short amount of time is a fantastic feeling - one that I’ll have to remember in the future when I feel like I need to recharge my motivation after a long grind on deep knowlege.
