Why does practice make perfect?

Nothing will make you perfect.

Practice will make you excellent.

However, there’s one thing one should understand before starting practicing : one should not practice dumbly.

Let’s say you’re a pianist. Would it be a great idea to practice by only playing the same piece over and over? It would not.

Maybe a dancer. Does doing a choreography again an again during 8 hours sound efficient? It doesn’t.

  • The pianist knows how to practice. He knows he has to understand when to slow down or play piano. He will have to notice the parts he gets wrong, analyze them, and undestand why there are wrong. Were the fingers placed wrong?
  • Same goes for the dancer. Repeating a choreography for a whole day, sounds useless to me. I’m saying that as a dancer. He should try to understand what’s wrong with his moves, record himself dancing, or look at his body in the mirror when he dances. Are his movements inaccurate? Is he putting too much energy in his moves? Not enough, maybe?

You see where this is going. Practice should be smart. It should not consist of doing the same thing over and over, and expecting to improve your skills.

When practicing an instrument, a speech, or a choreography, you should record yourself, then listen to the record right after. Locate what part you don’t like, and why you don’t like it. You should, before starting to practice, know what you want to focus on.

Even if there’s nothing to record, maybe in the case of mathematics or reading, know exactly what you want to improve. Pay attention to it.

“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”
