It’s better to be an expert beginner than a beginning expert.
Don’t be in a hurry to advance to the next level. Each new level requires more of you. Take time to thoroughly enjoy the level you are on. Pat yourself on the back, take a bow, share with others at that level.
Even if you find yourself a bit ahead of the rest of pack, stay there for a while. Soak it in. Enjoy it to the fullest. Being “first” in your class makes you feel stronger.
Enjoy being an expert beginner before going to the next level. As soon as you get to the next level you are a beginner again.
