Float like a Butterfly and Sting like a Bee.

When working your karate training, remind yourself with every count Muhammad Alis famous quote to Float like a Butterfly and Sting like a Bee.
Start each movement with maximum agility (i.e., without muscling it), so that you can easily and rapidly accelerate to maximum speed and power.
Practice the Yin-Yang in each of your counts. The Yin being the fluid-light start of the movement ("float like a butterfly") till you get your feet planted and hands chambered immediately followed by the Yang, being the "pedal to the metal, full acceleration to maximum speed and power, knockout strike, precisely through the target (sting like a bee or smash like a bull).
