Lets go back but, back to what exactly?
Lets go back to books that we haven’t read in a while!
Sometimes we read books at the beginning of our journey and never look at them again.
“I read them and I know what is in them”.
This was a thought that I used to have.
Now, lets go back a little bit.
I used to just read a book, put it back in my bookshelf, and only go back whenever I needed a routine/technique from that book. I realize now that this stopped me from fully mastering a routine with the current knowledge and technique that I have.
Today I was reading the Dai Vernon inner card trilogy again. I was reading it and I stumbled upon a beautiful effect. The effect was Vernon’s color changing deck.
I read this effect even tough I have my own color changing deck routine, which I prefer to perform.
When reading it something snapped in me. I was reading it, as a result, I realized something for my own color changing deck routine.
It just hit me, This was the part that I have never been happy about!
I just knew how to fix it. Vernon’s routine remembered me about the essence of the effect.
I got this essence so much better now that I am reading the book 3 years later.
Go back some things that you haven’t for a while. You might find a beautiful effect that you could never appreciate before!
