On Practice

A practice is an exercise done regularly with the intention of growing skills or competence. Practice gives you felt experience of new ideas, making them part of who you are. “Knowing” alone changes little. (Books don’t teach skiing; coming down the mountain does.) What about practice without intention? Everyday life might be viewed this way; we do the same things each day. Because the thoughts that drive this are often unconscious, and are likely not even our own, we’re in fact practicing being someone else. If you can get that good at being who you don’t want to be, imagine the power in practicing who you do want to be. Intention and awareness are crucial.
