Practice makes perfect - sometimes

"Practice makes perfect" is one of the top-ten most common English language expressions. But is it true? In order to achieve the desired result, perfection requires more than just repetition. Repetition of a bad habit (like smoking) can ensure unmatched mastery of that habit, but that's probably not the desired result.

Practice does not make perfect,
perfect practice makes perfect.
- Vince Lombardi

Practice alone is not enough, and may be counterproductive. To achieve your desired result:

1. Be clear of your objective.

2. Visualize your end result as having already been accomplished. Let the image of your success play on the giant screen in full color with surround sound - so real you can smell and taste it.

3. Establish a set of daily practices that will lead to the result you want.

4. Finally, with the first three pillars in place, practice, practice, every day practice.

Do or do not, there is no try.
- Yoda (Star Wars movie)
