Forget “Practice Makes Perfect,” This is What REALLY Makes You a Master

Forget Practice Makes Perfect, This is What REALLY Makes You a Master

I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying, practice makes perfect or something along those lines.

It’s true to some extent, but like most things in life, it’s the quality of that practice that truly matters.

Think of it like this. You wouldn’t expect a tightrope walker to debut their act 50 feet above concrete with no net, would you? No way! They’d start low, over a forgiving pit of foam peanuts.

That’s the practice zone where they make numerous mistakes before they ever get to perform. It’s a safe place to learn.

The performance zone is where you put your polished skills to the test. Competition day, a big presentation, treating your first patient – that’s all performance zone. The goal here is to minimize errors and deliver your best work.

Effective performance relies heavily on what you did in the practice zone. The biggest mistake I see? Throwing a team fresh out of a course right into the real world and expecting miracles.

Supervised practice in a low-pressure environment. Let them make mistakes, get feedback, and refine their skills before they handle paying clients. Structure your practice for mistakes, and don’t be afraid to experiment.
