On Craft

One of the greatest psychoanalysts Erich Fromm, who in my opinion has the deepest understanding of the human condition, said that a craft is a lifelong practice, which one has to do daily and by discipline to get to mastership.

I also remember an anecdote about a musician, he has already been called a master by others and playing his instrument for ages, who said that he just begins to understand his instrument and how to play it.
