Today 2 questions popped in my head..
1 - How crucial is it to have a teacher/coach when learning something new?
2 - How crucial is it to know the teacher/coach's intentions?
This leads to the next question..
How do you know that the teacher/coach's intentions are right?
Because, if the intention is wrong, then your learning might be influenced and lead to a totally different conclusion.. get what I'm saying?
Knowlegde is very powerful.. and the wrong understanding and application would be very dangerous!
A wise sensei once said "The right tool given to the wrong man will always be used the wrong way!"
