“Rule your mind or it will rule you.”  – Horace

I really like Tommy Kono’s point (paraphrased): Practice doesn’t make perfect; practice makes permanent. The idea that practicing something is guaranteed to make it correct is nonsense.

If attention isn’t given to performing every single repetition as well as possible at that moment, you’re actually making things worse for yourself by further practicing what you’re doing wrong. – Read the rest of the ARTICLE HERE
