Practice Makes Perfect?

Pickture of someone playing piano.

People always tell you to practice whatever you want to be good at. That practice makes perfect!

However I once read somewhere that”practice without correction just makes you perfectly wrong”.

So I guess that means if I practice doing the housework wrong I’ll get really good at doing it wrong. I think the person who said that was actually talking about sports though. Or maybe playing an instrument.

I’m pretty sure that if you practice swinging a golf club wrong you will just get better at swinging it wrong…you game won’t improve at all.

I’m hoping that I haven’t been practicing writing wrong. Because it has been almost 2 years now and I hope I’m getting better at it.

I’m better at writing a lot of words anyway. Whether all those words are any better at getting idea across…dunno for sure.

When I first starting blogging almost two years ago I could barely string 50 words together and I thought that was something! These days I sometimes manage to write well over 300 words all by myself!

Of course if it really takes 10,000 hours to master a skill….then there are still about 7000 hours left to go.

That’s a lot more writing to do. Maybe by that time I’ll be ready to write that book my hubby keeps telling me I need to write. He hasn’t told me what it should be about yet though…
