Seek practice over immediate gratification

"If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again” is a popular saying but, to count as truly helpful advice, it should say: "If at first you don’t succeed, practice, practice, practice, and then try, try, again”

Building habits is a long-term game, there's no immediate fix.

Some of the greatest artists, innovators, and athletes of all time became great because of their commitment to practice, not their commitment to seeing immediate results.

Sometimes your task is so mundane and so far away from being what is normally considered a skill that it’s hard to figure out how to practice it at all; so you have to get creative.

The more banal and ordinary a habit is the less likely we are to think about how to deliberately practice it

It is a focused attempt to improve at a task that “also involves the provision of immediate feedback, time for problem‐solving and evaluation, and opportunities for repeated performance to refine behavior."

Deliberate Practice is important for me to save time. It helps me become mindful on how I practice and knowing this helps me understand and answered the question I always ask myself in the past: why am I not making any progress? This idea helps me a lot and I hope this benefit you too! Happy reading and have a good day!
