Point A to Point B

There's a simple way to get the most out of your practice session.

Think of it as getting from point A to point B.

It's like going for a walk, or driving somewhere. You should know where you are. And you should know where you're going. And you should know how to get to where you're going.

Yet, our default sense of practicing is like wandering through the woods in a foreign country with no compass.

Point A - What's your starting point? Where are your problems? What do you want to fix today?

Point B - Where do you want to be at the end of your practice session? What do you want to have accomplished?

The line in between point A and point B - which steps make the most sense?

Define point A, point B, and the steps in between when you practice next.

If you've never done it before, you'll find the experience life-changing.
