In the NFL, the difference between the best in the league and the worst in the league is only a margin of 2%! This is because the standards in that arena are so high; we can take these same standards and hold ourselves accountable to these as well in our daily practices. The difference between excellent and OUTSTANDING is a tiny gap, that takes work and daily discipline to stay on the path. 'Miss 1 day of practice and you notice; miss 2 days of practice and the band notices; miss 3 days of practice and the audience notices.' Push yourself to keep these high standards alive in your life everyday, ESPECIALLY when you don't feel like it!

Go back and have fun watching the original classic 1980’s movie The Karate Kid! I loved this movie growing up, but there are a lot of great lessons to take into life. Here, I go into my top 3: sharpening your FOCUS, surrounding yourself with great people and seeking MENTORS in your life, and the power of compounding precise and disciplined DAILY REPETITIONS in your PRACTICE. Have fun watching this movie and sharing it with others, and take your focus, mentors, and practice to the next level!
This is a story from one of my mentors, the great teacher Jim Blackley. He passed away shortly after this was filmed, so this is a tribute to the man he was, and the impact he had. The lesson he shared here was to focus on going inward, doing the WORK required and not always searching outward for answers. There are no hacks or quick fixes, just long hours spent building slowly over time. This is what FOCUS really is: going inward, and stripping away at the unessential. THANK YOU Jim Blackley!

If Bruce Lee was only a badass martial artist he would still be remembered, but it was his philosophy combined WITH his craft that made such an impact on the world. Bruce Lee was always one of my favorite 'drummers' because there are so many connections to Bruce's martial art Jeet Kune Do to drumming! We can learn so many physical and mental approaches to make our craft and lives better. Bruce also had a huge impact on the drumming and life of one of the best in the world and one of my biggest influences Mark Kelso. We had a great conversation on everything we have learned from Bruce Lee to take to our drumming and our lives. Mark also drew the connection to Bruce Lee to Steve Gadd, and we go deep into this! Enjoy this episode, and stay great!
