“Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.” ― Frank Zappa
Are you in a practicing rut? If so, what can you change to promote progess? More frequent, shorter practice sessions? Starting earler in the day? More basics? More tools like decibel meters and video cameras for additional external feedback?
We all have a tendency to find “what works” and then stick to it. But we must not be scared to change what’s working in exchange for the possibility of a breakthrough.
We can always go back to what we were doing in the first place if our deviation doesn’t bear fruit.
