Hello My Friend,

Have you ever heard the old saying ‘Practice makes perfect?’ Well, if you are anything like me, then you've likely heard it and used it in your life somewhere along the way.

The unfortunate thing about this philosophy is it can be dead wrong. Yes, you read that right. I am not agreeing with the practice makes perfect philosophy all together. This is because if a person is doing something just a bit incorrectly and they repeat it over and over, they are not on the road to achiving perfection. They are headed toward being efficient at doing something wrong.

The truth is PERFECT PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. This is likely why there are so many golf pros in the world. There are very few perfect golf games being played, so the teachers and mentors are found all over trying to help players get that little bit of improvement.  It is only when someone learns to practice perfectly that they able to perform at a high level. This philosophy extends beyond the golf course into the realms of work, other sports, cooking, social activities, and even relationships.

It is worth considering if we are doing things the right way in our life. That little bit extra we can put in to being the person who is willing to practice, and more importantly being willing to practice perfectly, might make a big difference in our future. Try this week to find something you can improve on and then practice. And remember the better we are at our practice, the better our results.

I wish you much success, peace, and happiness.
