Of course, there’s no magic to being good at something – you have to put in the time.
I hear the same refrain from lots of students (with minor changes) – “I didn’t have time to practice this week”.
Of course, that’s a lie:
- You choose not to practice because it’s not a priority
- You can make time to practice in your calendar
- If you are busy, you can still make some progress if you 80/20 your practice session
But when it comes down to it, this post by Derek Sivers “Where to Find the Hours to Make it Happen” covers it.
