What would you give up for perfection/complete mastery of your art?


What would you sacrifice, material or otherwise, for total perfection in your "field" or art. Would you give up all your material good, for example, to be able to think like Albert Einstein or Steven Hawking? Would you as a pianist, give up a leg - or both?? - to have the command, ear, passion and technical mastery of a Liszt, Mozart, Chopin, or for that matter Bud Powell or Bill Evans? I think answers both realistic and "deals with the devil" sort of hypotheticals could both be very interesting!
