The Second Week

There are times when a student will have a really good week.

Practice time every day.

Following the practice instructions every day.

Feeling progress every day.

And they understand that it didn't take much time at all. It's exciting. Good times ahead. We've got this practicing thing down now.

But then the second week passes. And they've fallen back to previous habits, not having progressed as much.

Therein lies the challenge.

When you have a good week, that's wonderful. Celebrate.

But...focus extra-hard on the second week.

Because that will be the deal breaker that causes you to either gain momentum, or slide back to baseline.
