Practice Tips – Read and Reread Slowly

  • As you practice, you need to find the zone where you are working, but not reaching or struggling too much. Neither should it be too easy. There should be some level of struggle and you need to embrace it. Go for a number of high quality reaches or repetitions rather than a fixed time. Break everything down into small chunks when possible, and practice each chunk until you get it as perfect as possible. Try to come up with a visual image for each chunk. Small sessions every day are better than longer sessions once a week. Try to make getting better seem more like a game than a boring drill. World class performers are also likely to practice alone. Try to slow things down to help get them right, and try closing your eyes as you practice.
