Episode 105: Tiny Beetle Steps

I recently attended a handstand workshop and my teacher’s dedication to his craft is one of the perfect examples as to why there’s no such thing as an overnight success. Progress is made in tiny beetle steps and it can get discouraging after the novelty of your big project wears off, but you have to keep at it if you want to see long-term success.
