Today I walked pass a house where someone was practicing what appeared to be one of his first saxophone lessons. A somewhat unstable do-re-mi was repeated over and over. It made me think how we all know you can't just pick up an instrument and play like a star right away, but somehow expect to be able to do things perfect immediately in most areas of our lives. The only thing that makes perfect is practice. According to Ericsson you need 10.000 hours to master something. I say let's start the countdown!
