Fundamental of Achievement

Daily
Practice

Daily practice is arguably the best way to develop new skills and improve existing ones.  It’s one of those basic wisdoms too few of us take full advantage of.  Still fewer of us truly understand how to get the most out of it.  Yet crack the code and you could see exponential growth.

What Is Daily Practice?

Daily practice is the act of doing something everyday with the intention of becoming better at it.  It is a surefire way to upgrade any skill.  Putting in the work everyday produces incremental progress, which can ultimately lead to mastery in virtually any pursuit.

Why Daily Practice?

The value of daily practice is largely self-explanatory.  It’s one of the few things that makes improvement inevitable and predictable.

I don’t claim to be an expert on anything I write about.

Hell, I hardly claim to be an expert on myself.  😂😂😂

These breakdowns are largely for me.  I use them to record and reference.  Unlike most others on this site though, this goal setting page might actually be useful to the outside observer.

No promises.  You can tell me.

Practice Makes Progress

“Practice makes perfect,” is just a cute saying.  The truth: perfection doesn’t exist.  But you can always get better.

Pay Your 10,000 Hours

They say Mastery requires 10,000 hours on what you’re trying to get good at.  You can only pay that cost day by day.

Defined by the Daily

Your life will be determined by what you do everyday.  You can either waste that time or spend it getting better.

Dividends by the Day

Daily practice has a great R.O.T.I., or return on time investment.  Quotidian application guarantees improvement.

Daily practice is a simple yet very powerful concept.  Here’s a quick look at what making daily practice a habit has been like for me.

Learn with Me

Like most of us:

I’ve done a lot of practice in my life.

As a kid, it started with Tae Kwon Do, football, and piano.  And of course, there was math, reading, writing, and everything else we go to school to learn how to do.

As an adult though, I’ve been the one in control of what I learn about and which skills I gain.

My focus has been on things like SEO, Finance, Gardening, and Cooking.

My Experience

I used to value the game more than the practice

Now, I have a lot more appreciation for practice that I did before.

 

I’m climbing my way toward mastery.

More than anything, I just need a few more years.

I already have a fairly sophisticated system.  But for me, figuring out what I really want takes reps.

I use my goals to carve out a life purpose.

Points of emphasis respond to change in both me and in the world.  But all the while, they pull me forward.

I create goals then mold my character to the traits that those objectives require.  My goals help me discover the man I need to be so that I can do the things I want to do.

So far, they’ve served me well.  Long may it continue.

  • Importance – 99%
  • Passion – 85%
  • Mastery – 90%

Good Life Foundation

Goals are fundamental.  They are an essential pillar of a good life.  Without them, it’s easy to get blown to and fro by the winds of the world.

Where Goal Setting Fits in a Good Life

Goals are one of the most important pieces of the Achievement puzzle.

For me, they’re a “Tier 2” concept, on the same level as Mindset, Habits, Growth, and High Performance.

It is also closely tied to practices like Journaling.

The Habit of Unlocking Your Potential

For daily practice newbies:

Let’s start with the best advice up front.

Just get started.

compound growth, like a savings account… while there are some things you can do that are more like investing or trading/growth hacking your skills a la 6 hour chef… 1% x 365 days = XXX% growth 3700%?

 

practice is controlled failure… from will smith moticut

 

practice doesn’t make perfect… but it does make progress (les brown)

incremental improvement… not always a straight line, often follows a jump/plateau/jump/plateau/jump/plateau

No Days Off

Discipline is required to do almost anything constructive day after day.  The human mind becomes bored easily.  Plus, various forms of resistance (like Distraction and Procrastination) are always lurking around.

Make It Measurable

It’s important to know you’re making progress.  Documentation is probably the best way to do so.  Plus, it can help you identify what is working and what isn’t.

 

simplest to track hours… but could be reps, made shots, etc.
