There’s an episode of Futurama where Frye gets a $300 coffee gift card. After drinking one cup of coffee after another, he gets more and more jittery. Then, on his 100th cup of coffee, he attains enlightenment. He is calm and in control, and the world slows down around him as he saves his friends from a burning building.
In practicing my exercises 1000 times, I am trying to gain a similar enlightenment – thinking in larger phrases, hands moving smoothly from one measure to the next without jerky movements. Thinking only in the moment. Steady tempo with no rushing.
For me, the only way to get this is through massive number of repetitions. Although 100 cups of coffee would probably help.
