I just realize that there's one more important factor
to be a stronger Igo (Weiqi, Baduk) player.

On Aug. 11th, I said
"Repetition is the key to be a strong Go (Igo, Weiqi, Baduk) player!"

→ see http://kazsensei.seesaa.net/article/104571847.html

What I'm going to say here is kind of similar to that.

That is:


This is a Japanese proverb (not the Igo proverb, but
a proverb in general).

I've checked all my dictionaries and googled on the net,
but I can't find the translation for that.

So I'll just translate as:

ぴかぴか(新しい)"The continuation of your work will lead to have what it takes."ぴかぴか(新しい)

So let's put it as a Igo proverb. I'd say something like:

ぴかぴか(新しい)"The continuation of your work will lead to be a
stronger Igo (wéiqí, baduk) player."

Here "work" means study Igo, practice Igo, play games, etc.

(If there is anyone who could write a better English,
please do so. English is my second language, so I
can't write like native speakers... yet.)

To become a stronger Igo (Weiqi, Baduk) player, you should
continue your work.

Some of you might think, "Hey, come on! We know that!
Don't preach me!"

がく〜(落胆した顔)I'm sorry if I sound like I'm preaching.

But I must say in Japan I've seen many people who never
study Igo continuously.

They just try some problems. They start playing Igo all day.
They never look back the problems any more.

Mayber after a month, they might go back to the problems
just briefly.

But that's not enough to improve your Igo.

Some people say "Yeah, I know that. But I'm busy..."

Yes, we are all busy, working, taking care of a family,
having fun with friends.

But just making an excuse doesn't help you become a
better Igo (Weiqi, Baduk) player.

Pardon my strong words.ふらふら

If you have other priorities, that's fine. Igo is not the
most important thing for many people.

But if you're really eager to be a better Igo player,
you have to put your mind to it.

Then I just realize that there are some good words.

Rather than saying "continuation", maybe I should say
"persistence" or "perseverance".

Here is a proverb in Japan:

That is translated as:

ぴかぴか(新しい)"Perseverance wins in the end."ぴかぴか(新しい)

ぴかぴか(新しい)"Perseverance brings success."ぴかぴか(新しい)

Choose books you can understand easily.

Solve problems you can solve easily.

Find books which you can enjoying reading.

If you continue it, then after a half year or so, you may
see things more than ever.

More advice is coming...


After I wrote this blog, I checked many more dictionaries,
then found the better translations of 「継続は力」, which
is the following:

ぴかぴか(新しい)"Continuity is the father of success." ぴかぴか(新しい)
ぴかぴか(新しい)"Perseverance will accomplish all things."ぴかぴか(新しい)

So let me put it in a Go term:

"Continuity of learning Go is the father of success to be
a stronger Go player


"Perseverance to learn Go will accomplish to be a strong
Go player
