Question: Is it better to do X or do Y?
Answer: Well, that depends on your goal. What is your goal?
This is something I come back to time and time again. I think I’ve answered the question, I feel I’ve answered the question, yet I know I haven’t really answered the question.
Previously on the blog, I attempted to answer the question about my goals in training. Here’s a snippet:
… What are my high level goals in practicing taiji? First and foremost, it’s to nurture my body after many years of wushu wear and tear. In addition, I enjoy the meditative aspects of the art. I don’t train in taiji to be a bada$$ martial artists, I don’t train to fight, I train to learn about myself and who I am. I train in taiji because it makes me a better person.
So, is it better to do X or do Y? 😉
