I keep a journal of what I play every day, and if I have a good day, I know what led up to it so I can keep doing it. Likewise, it helps me avoid bad days.

That's a great idea, and something I am going to start myself.


It's no fun trying to climb out of a hole after not having played for several days. If I find myself playing with weekend warriors for whatever reason, I realize that many of them only play one or two days a week, and so they're *always* trying to climb out of a hole. They may not even know what it feels like to have a good day.

As much as the saying "Practice makes perfect" gets thrown around, it's surprising how so many people don't recognize its simple truth. Every day, at least a little bit, no excuses. Pretty soon you forget what it was like when you couldn't play through that hard part.
