If the above adage is true, then I should be perfect at not practicing.
I have realized that my previous experience of things coming easily to me has one major downside, I don't have the experience of practicing to improve. That is a scary thought. Almost scary enough for me not to post it.
Sure, being aware of it should be the tool that helps me move forward. But moving beyond denial doesn't delve deeper into the root cause. It seems like good intentions are fine (and great for paving the road to hell) but without further understanding of the source, it may be another case of: "Wow, I'm glad I know that. Now what's on tv?" Speaking of which... Kidding.
