There is something about trying very hard till you achieve something. Something small, something significant, whatever it is. They(who?) tell you to keep at it. Keep working on it till you get better, till you perfect the art. But contrary to what I was taught to believe in, it is very true that practice might not always make “perfect”, but you can gaurantee it makes “permanent”. If you are bad at something and keep doing it, very soon you will get damn good at being really bad.

Let’s hope that we first get good at the art of practicing before we try to get good at something else.
