We all need to rethink our goals. We all think we know what it is that we want, but most of us never really find it. I mean take me, I sit down and work on perfecting my tools, but with what aim? I'm always after that perfection, but it's not until I'm using them that I see it.
That's the difference, right there, the moment where it could stick. I mean, it just slipped out, and that's important, but when I'm sharpening the blade I think more about how precise the angle is. It's not until I use it that i think about how easy it is to stab someone with a properly finished edge.
