If I only had that new set of golf clubs, my game would be more enjoyable.
If I only had that powerful kitchen mixer, my breads would be more popular.
If I only had that new laptop, my writing would gain a wider audience.

The key to excellence is practice, repetition, learning from mistakes. Basic tools are all we need to practice. Continuous Improvement is the path to excellence.

Better to focus our energy on doing better with what we have.
