Gentry's Hammer

Current formulations. These laws apply to the creation of laws, I've noticed ;-)

Gentry's Hammer To be good at something, you must first be bad at it.

Gentry's Scythe Everything that is not fundimental is a distraction.

Gentry's Anvil Fundimentals are simple and hard.

I have a problem with "Gentry's Hammer". I'm having a hard time swallowing the inclusion of the name Gentry in a principle that has to do with the acceptance, even if just for a short time, of being bad at something. This Gentry line does not tolerate doing things poorly well, as you know.

In my experience no Gentry accepts being less than excellent, and there is no question that Josh is the least tolerant of his own performance.

You can think of formulating these laws as therapy for me ;-)
