Deep Practice Can Be Used To Develop Skill

"I believe more in nurture than nature in learning and development. I know what can be achieved in developing talent through the 10 000-hour rule and the principles of deep practice. Deep practice can be used to develop skills and train the mind and in a sport such as rowing, having the correct mindset is key."

The Beauty of One's Character

"The beauty of one's character cannot be separate from kindness in character, kindness forms the basis of virtue.  To be kind to others, basically means to appreciate the good points in others, committing kind acts with others.  Later on it comes to mean treating and helping others with a kind attitude.  Kindness is the actualisation of virtue.  As the key content of virtue, it helps to determine whether something is virtuous and it is the basic nature of virtue."

Life is Always Flowing and Changing

"The river, like life, is always flowing and changing, and we do not have any control over the river or life. Building personal resilience—the ability to recover from or adjust easily to change—is far more valuable and effective at reducing stress and finding meaning in the moment than trying to control life’s activities or events."

WillPower Grows Over Time

Respond By Being Responsible

"Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible."
