Consistency is key

Wrestling coach story

Client Commitment

            -Just do the work

            -I can tell when a client spends lots of time with their dog

            -I can’t make you the dog of your mind’s eye

-Why I chose to remain a gundog trainer when the pet business is more lucrative (and less work)


            -Woody Allen

                        “80% of success is showing up”

            -Pavel (greasing the groove)

“Strength is a skill, and, as such, it must be practiced.”

         -Dan John


-Steven Pressfield (the war of art, turning pro, resistance, the muse)

-“This is the other secret that real artists know and wannabe writers don’t. When we sit down each day and do our work, power concentrates around us. The Muse takes note of our dedication. She approves. We have earned favor in her sight. When we sit down and work, we become like a magnetized rod that attracts iron filings. Ideas come. Insights accrete.”

            -Martin Deely

                        –When it comes to training a dog, 5 minutes a day Monday through Friday is better than 30 minutes on Saturday.
