The Plateau Of Latent Potential, Part II
(con't from Part I) Students may work at it some, don't yet see the expected results, and may be tricked into thinking they're not making any progress, but, they progress -- and everyone's time-table is their own. Nothing and no one -- the most esteemed performers and teachers included -- have any business erecting barricades between individual students and their own burning desire to follow their own individual dream, even if that dream, on its surface, appears to be afar off. The wise teacher knows that the snapshot of the moment of the highly motivated student will not be the same snapshot a month from now, or a year from now. All that student needs ... are the right tools.
