There are automobile schools that teach classes in high-performance "Precision Driving". There's the "Precision System" of bidding in the card game Bridge, designed to maximize information transfer between partners. There's multiple-precision arithmetic in computers, crafted to maintain accuracy during intensive calculations.

So is there an art (or technology) of Precision Living? What might it involve? Perhaps efficiency, economy of means? Perhaps achievement, performing up to one's fullest potential? Perhaps balance, optimization of choices over multiple conflicting goals?
