to make each swing better than the last.
The repetition of a faulty swing would be worse than useless.
It would ingrain bad habits.

over time, we can train ourselves to respond
to events as we choose - without anger.
You can't magically be free from anger tomorrow,
but you can put yourself on your own training program
that will reduce the frequency and intensity
of your anger response day by day, year by year.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
