Completely understand about fundamentals. Because of my work schedule I am next to the academy when Fundamentals starts. I attend because I can't think of anything else to do. Most nights I will stay for advanced but sometimes I leave after fundamentals. Our fundamentals is a 16 week program and I have sen it so many times over the last 5 years. Hell I have taught half of the Curriculm but I still go because of timing.
I don't remember the quote but being great is about doing the basics better then anyone else. That gives me hope that all the times I have went to fundamentals isn't a waste.
What we think, or what we know, or what we believe, is in the end, of little consequence. The only thing of consequence is what we do. -John Ruskin
