Those are indeed worthy goals. My own personal goals are almost identical, except in reverse order, plus the addition of one extra: Goal Number Seven: Never blowing a cast 99% of the time. I believe that you need to set goals in order to advance. If not, ones casting will stagnate and never get any better. I feel it is the same with students. Give them an attainable goal, one which requires them to not only practice, but also think about what they must do in order to attain this goal.
