perfectly

There’s this funny thing that happens when you play a mistake and try to fix it. Often you play the mistake over and over and over expecting to play it correctly. It isn’t a good strategy for stopping the mistake. Instead one develops the mistake instead of the correction.

Like when people are upset about their behavior and focus on what they did wrong and supply judgemental feelings. Telling themselves they are bad or wrong or guilty blah blah blah, over and over. Run the same action with the hope of new outcomes but it is also sort of predictable that if there aren’t new elements introduced to the sequence of events then probably the result is just the same sequence of events.
 
I got it from Casey Sokal 30 years ago and maybe he said he got it from his teacher growing up in New York. Practice at the speed that you can do it perfectly.
 
It makes a lot of sense. Change the experience, practice doing it correctly. That it is a different speed is not a concern. I wonder if people can apply that to other problems? Probably no way that’s possible. Nope.
