  1. These kind of statements get under my skin and irritate me. Just like saying something takes ‘a lot of hard work’, doesn’t tell us anything useful about the actual nature and extent of the work involved, only that it is supposed to be “hard”. Saying that you need perfect practice to become perfect is fundamentally a circular statement. It has no beginning and no end.

  2. Ditto to Nathan’s post!

  3. Here’s one of my favorite quotes about the subject.

    “For it breeds great perfection, if the practice be harder than the use.”
    Francis Bacon. (1561–1626). Essays, Civil and Moral.
    The Harvard Classics. 1909–14.


    Of Nature in Men

    Worth reading the whole essay.

  4. ‘what if you’re practicing it wrong?’

    >> that’s why even Roger Federer has/had a coach
