"Heaven and earth are impartial;
they see the 10,000 things as straw dogs.
The sage is not sentimental;
he treats all his people as straw dogs.
The sage is like heaven and earth:
To him none are especially dear,
nor is there anyone he disfavours.
He gives and gives, without condition,
offering his treasures to everyone.
Between heaven and earth
is a space like a bellows;
empty and inexhaustible,
the more it is used, the more it produces.
Hold on to the center.
Man was made to sit quietly and find
the truth within."
5TH VERSE - TAO TE CHING

Training the mind can be in different ways; studying philosophy, working abstract puzzles, or disciplining the mind toward learning a system. I think all of those are very beneficial toward any profession, or, hobby; philosophy has a way of opening the mind; discipline focuses the mind on a certain point; and, puzzle working works toward a quicker mind.
