In truth, thatís the method for learning anything. Thinkers such as Stanislavski formalized their intuition and presented it in writing. It was common sense formalized. The rest of us who spare our brains from the tough job of thinking run after methods like sheep.
In reality, thereís no method to anything.

Hi Sathyaish,

The method you are referring is called in Management "Passion" If you don't have that passion or "Killer instinct" as it is called in sports, in your inside of belly, you will never achieve anything. That amounts to saying, the motivation should be "internal not external" We have such shining example in our epic Mahabharatha, - the example of Ekalavya, who though poor and could not afford to have a great teacher like Dronacharya, had a strong passion to master archery which was burning in his belly inside. As a result he became a great expert, better than Arjuna, who was systematically taught the science of archery by Drona!! Drona could not stomach his greatness and he had already promised Arjuna to make the him the world's best archer.In order to fulfill this promise, in the guise of "Gurudakshina" he asks the right had thumb of Ekalavya and renders him a non-performing asset!!

When Swami Vivekananda wanted to return to India after delivering his speech in the Congress of Religion in Chicago in 1893, a lady approaches him and asks, "Swami, you are returning empty handed to your country. Don't want take anything from USA?" Smilingly, the Swami replies, "What is there in your country, which is not available in India?" Many times I am reminded of this, whenever I read the modern version of management skills, techniques, etc. If you go deep inside our history, you will find gold mine, nothing but gold mine. But most of us not aware of it. Because as T.S.Eliot says,

"We are the hollow men

We are the stuffed men

Leaning together

Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!

Beautiful comments, Mr. Subramanyam, especially the T.S Eliot reference. Thank you for reminding me of the parable from the Mahabharata and the anecdote from Swami Vivekananda's life. I have been deeply influenced by both, Eliot's writings and Swami Vivekanada's as well, among others. Vivekananda has remained a personal hero of mine.
