effortless…

“We know from personal experience that, through training, even tasks that seem extremely hard initially can become almost automatic.
…through sustained, disciplined practice one’s application of attention, which initially involves a great deal of effort, subsequently gives way to a limited mastery in which some effort is still required, and finally the task becomes effortless and spontaneous.”
the Dalai Lama
