Well, I disagree.
"Best practice ...makes close to perfect" is what I like to teach my students.
"Why is that?" you might ask.
The reasons are simple.
Practice something over and over and over again .... incorrectly, and what is your final result going to be?
Exactly. It will not be that good. Whether you're practicing a sport, a craft, or a skill.
Therefore, you need to figure out how to teach someone "best practices" and not just the habit of practicing.
Sounds complicated, but it really isn't.
Here's what you do:
Find someone who is successful at what you want to be good at... and simply watch them. Talk to them. Listen to them.
Then go practice what they do, did, or said.
It's that simple.
Sometimes we spend way to much energy at practice, and not enough time on PREPARING to practice.
Hope that helps you the next time you're ... "practicing your craft."
