Ride the Boogie

The lesser the effort, the greater the achievement.

While this strikes me as counter-intuitive, I’m seeing its truth in all kinds of places. For example, Michael Jackson’s dancing. While I’m totally dazzled by the robot moves (if I could move my shoulder just once like that, I’d be impressed with myself), what really gets me going is the smooth and loose style, like in the video below.

It’s not that he isn’t disciplined; there’s control behind all his moves. But when it’s time for actual boogieing, the concentration is left behind and the body takes over and does its thing.

Take it from him:
There ain’t nothing that you can do
Relax you mind
Lay back and groove with mine.
