I’ve discovered that I have a weakness in the area of practicing music. I will practice something until I get it about 85%, then I’ll lose interest and stop.
I’ll set a specific goal, such as to play a song at a tempo of 240BPM. I’ll work on that for maybe 4 days, until I can play it at 240BPM but very sloppily. Then I’ll immediately lose interest and move on.
Right now I’m trying to figure out what it actually means to set a goal and thoroughly accomplish it and check it off my list. I need to learn how to work through that phase where I lose interest, and accomplish the goal with authority and confidence.
