Ep 4. Practice Part 2

If you don’t like practice, you won’t want to do it; it’s that simple. This episode offers three ways we make practice undesirable and how to approach it instead.

1. Judgment –If you punish yourself, judge your dancing and focus on what’s not going well, you will not like practicing.

2. Impatience–Thinking you are supposed to be further along than you are, waiting until the finish line to be happy, and preconceived expectations lead to frustration, anxiety, disappointment and depression.

3. Making practice work–If you like an activity, you call it play. If you don’t, you call it work. Thinking of practice as drudgery or a nuisance on the way to an end goal will make it undesirable and you won’t want to do it. Listen in for solutions.
