You don’t need me to convince you that practice is key to improvement. We’ve all been through enough sports or enough music or enough hobbies to know that is true. So here’s the question of the day: what are you practicing these days? Not just what are you doing, but what are you consciously, carefully practicing?
Everyday, you have chances to practice things like:
- people skills
- thinking ahead
- questioning everything
- dreaming or visioning
- learning from others
Of course, practice works best when you focus. So pick one item to improve. Focus on it and practice it all week long. Rate your performance. Track your progress. You can’t practice what you don’t pay attention to.
