    * Craftsmanship is an attitude of mind- having the skills to engage the mind in a way that utilizes all of our functions, organizing them into strategies and effective systems or processes.
    * We are at our best as craftspeople when the myriad systems of life are organized, taught and learned. It's those all important elements of strategy, systems, processes and execution.
