You’ve heard the saying practice makes perfect over and over again, but what does practice really make?

When you go through new experiences, there are times of discomfort. Think about how you felt when you rented your first apartment, bought your first house, or started your first job. You probably felt out of place, confused and stressed during all of these first time events. The next time you found a new home or started a new job, you were more comfortable and confident.

Whatever you spend time practicing, you inevitably get better and more comfortable with it.

But, what if you’re practicing the wrong thing?

For example, are you working at an unfulfilling job?

The more time you spend at this job, the more it feels like the norm,

which makes it harder to make a change. You are effectively giving yourself more practice in complacency.

Consider the things you are practicing.

What are you regularly devoting you time and energy to?

Make sure these are things you actually want to be good at.

Practicing the things you want makes a happier you.
