I once read in Wing Chun Compendium that Intent is more important than force, muscle pressure, energy etc. The book explains the concept of intent (in my paraphrase) as
"Just think about it. The hand will hit the target, the foot will raise and kick the target, all by themselves."
Doesn't it sound as magical as the Law of Attraction folks?
The I recalled what I often see in TV documentaries on wild life.
Fish flying from holes to holes in their muddy banks. Fish climbing walls, scaling mountains.
Birds diving deep into waters. Birds swimming across waves.
But fish remain fish and never leave the essence of fish. So do birds.
Apple engineers did study Jelly bean factories. But they are not turning Apple into Food and Beverage business. They were there to study how to make Jelly bean colors of their iMacs enticing.
Adaptability doesn't mean scattering, splintering, dispersing one's time, attention and resources.
