I'll be the first to admit—along my parents, husband & most of my friends—that I am awful at practicing. I love the idea of focusing to dedicatedly honing my skills & developing new ones, but I struggle under the tedium of practicing. I want to see results quickly—even when starting something new—but most often the transformation is not instantaneous.
Mastering any craft isn't normally accomplished in an afternoon. It takes hours—even years—of work & adjustments to really polish those necessary skills & see real results. Patience & toil are key to making your work EMBIGGEN!
