The Best Version Of Yourself
“When I was very young, about six years old, as I recall, I was sent off once a week for piano lessons. My mother had decided that all her sons would play the piano. I hated piano lessons and would complain every week. That was my first encounter with the maxim. ‘Practice makes perfect.’ My piano teacher would say it over and over again. My parents would reinforce the teacher’s message by telling me the same thing.
I now know that practice doesn't make perfect. Practice makes progress. And practice makes progress only if you practice the right things in the right way.
Piano lessons lasted only six months before my mother allowed me to quit. A couple of other times I was enrolled in classes, but they too were short-lived. It was not until I was about seventeen that I started playing the piano. I remember going to a party one night, and a friend of mine sat down at a piano and started playing, and everyone else started singing along. I had never heard anyone play popular music on the piano. I decided that night that I was going to learn to play the piano. Not my teacher’s way, not my parents’ way, but my way.” - Matthew Kelly, Perfectly Yourself
