“Back to basics” – this phrase seems pale and uninteresting. In a world that pushes the NEW fast-acting SECRET FORMULA! ten EASY steps to SMOOTHERcleanerYOUNGERbrighterMOREsuccessful…4 out of 126 people agree! angle, the basics are a bit unglamorous to say the least.
But this is where we start. Whether it’s in cooking, bike-riding, writing, singing or shoe tying, the basics are foundational. Take some time to review. Go “old school” and remind yourself how you do what you do and why you do it.You might discover something new and inspiring in the process.
