This week’s BOLD LAW… ” Spontaneity is a conditioned reflex “
When you watch someone who is really good or smooth at something, do you catch yourself thinking ” How do they do that ? “. How can they be so spontaneous ?…The answer…practice…not just practice…Perfect practice…!
We’ve all heard , ” Practice makes perfect ” , right ?…Uh Uh…From now on , you say, PERFECT practice makes PERFECT ! When you are constantly practicing what you desire to improve upon and, you are practicing it perfectly , you are going to develop spontaneity around that craft.
An actor rehearsing their part over and over…
A professional athlete hitting hundreds of thousands or shooting ( perhaps over a million ) balls on the range or on the court…muscle memory…
A doctor with hours of operations and procedures behind them
An artist or a scientist with years of experimenting
You get the picture…It takes 10,000 hours to get good at anything…..only then can you begin to look smooth and spontaneous and a conditioned reflex becomes automatic
You won’t get it in a day or a week or even a month…The question is , are you willing to start the 10,000 hour journey yourself by putting in the first 30 minutes , or the initial hour… today ?
