Striving for what is just out of reach & not quite making it.
“Purposeful practice is about grappling with tasks beyond your current limitations & falling short again & again.” Matthew Syed, author of Bounce.
Over time, with deep concentration and repetition and with a strong awareness of how the gap might be breached you close the gap, you nail the skill.
Then you set a new target, just out of reach again.
You go on.
Embrace the frustration.
Purposeful practice leads to progress.
