What is the best woodturning advice anyone has ever given yo

QOTW: What is the best woodturning advice anyone has ever given you?

1) Use sandpaper as if someone else is paying for it.

2) Don't sharpen tools because they are dull, sharpen them because they could be sharper.
    (In other words don't wait until they are dull)

Sharpening a pencil.

If you can remember how you sharpen a pencil, you will remember how to address the grain.

That's not woodturning advice. That's life advice.
