22. Refine a Skill (Ballet, Piano, Baseball, Sewing, Cooking, Painting)

There is no full-stop to knowledge. It is a continuous process without an end. Only because life is ever evolving, every second. So how can we humans halt at any point? So what if you are an accomplished ballet dancer or a pianist or a painter or even a chef! There is always that little extra that can make you shine even brighter. Take stock of any skill you may have and spend some time everyday sharpening that skill even more. If you are a singer, learn another form of music, or sign up for a cookery class that teaches you what you don’t already know. Even an athlete needs to work at his/her skill everyday- to better performance. Haven’t you heard of sports stars who have even signed up for Yoga sessions to hone the muscles of their mind. Likewise, there will always be that extra something that you can add to your own skill. Whatever you do, do it better every day so that you can look back in wonder at your own journey that has been upward bound!
