If you want to reach your goal on time and not to give in to the countless distractions we face every day, you have to consider these four things:
1. What to practice 2. How to practice 3. How much to practice 4. What's the frequency of your practice sessions In order for you to imagine what it takes to practice the right pieces the right way the right amount of time and the right time of the week, here are 16 options we have each week: 1. Not to practice at all 2. Practice the right pieces but the wrong way for the insufficient amount of time at the wrong frequency. 3. The wrong pieces the correct way for the insufficient amount of time at the wrong frequency. 4. The wrong pieces the wrong way for the right amount of time at the wrong frequency. 5. The wrong pieces the wrong way for the insufficient amount of time at the right frequency. 6. The right pieces the correct way for the insufficient amount of time and at the wrong frequency. 7. The right pieces the wrong way for the right amount of time at the wrong time frequency. 8. The right pieces the wrong way for the insufficient amount of time at the right frequency. 9. The wrong pieces the right way for the right amount of time at the wrong frequency. 10. The wrong pieces the right way for the insufficient amount of time at the correct frequency. 11. The wrong pieces the wrong way for the right amount of time at the correct frequency. 12. The right pieces the right way for the right amount of time at the wrong frequency. 13. The right pieces the right way for the insufficient amount of time at the correct frequency. 14. The right pieces the wrong way for the right amount of time at the correct frequency. 15. The wrong pieces the right way for the right amount of time at the correct frequency. 16. The right pieces the right way for the right amount of time at the correct frequency. So many less than ideal options. Which one will you choose tonight? (Because you always have a choice, right?) The first step is to figure out what are the right pieces, what is the correct way of practice, what is the sufficient amount of time of each practice session and what is the correct frequency of practice for your goal each week?
