Quote from Bon Bluth animator: "SIX STEPS TO A MORE SKILLFUL YOU: 1. Get a learning spirit or the desire to learn. 2. Knowledge should be readily available to you, like picking flowers in a field. 3. Make a plan to aquire the knowledge, i.e., the tools, timetable, teachers, etc. 4. Don't be discouraged when you stumble. If you slit your wrists, you're out of the race. 5. Keep silent. An empty head rattles more than a full one. Be a doer, not a talker. 6. Don't get arrogant when you succeed." T Jan 25
