While I was in China, my violinist friend Lauren told me how she went to some music seminar that gave her the 100 day challenge. I don't know what else was said in the seminar, but basically she committed to practicing the violin every single day for 100 days. When the 100 days were over, she did another 100, just because. She went 200 days without ever missing a day.
Here is what I hope to gain from this experience:
- I hope to learn more about how I practice, and what exactly makes me burn out.
- Just like reading scriptures or going to the gym, the key to improvement and understanding is CONSISTENCY. I am determined to come out of this a great flute player.
- After 100 days, hopefully I won't quit there! Maybe I'll do like Lauren did, and add on another 100 days.
