"Practice and all is coming."
"Practice and all is coming." It's a quote by P. Jois.
It's surely true, if one doesn't practice nothing will happen at all. Yet for myself I've modified this sentence. Practice correctly and all is coming. From my observances of others and myself I realized that it's possible to repeat mistakes for decades. This can lead to injuries re sportive activities. Or it can lead to nothing re languages i.e.
- Wrong shoulder positions over decades can lead to pain there when practicing Ashtanga yoga.
- Writing in English day in day out won't improve my grammar. I must write correctly. This requires studying the grammar. My vocabulary won't increase either when I don't learn new words.
Practicing alone is not enough. One must study again and again what one is doing, if one wants to improve. A critical mind is required.
