79 Practice Quotes

Here are some of the best practice quotes we could find to remind you that ‘repetition is the mother of skill’. Anyone who has ever dared to learn something new (a sport, a musical instrument, a language) knows how vitally important it is, to practice, practice, practice! Have you heard of the 10,000 hours to Mastery rule? It’s been proven that people who spend more than 10,000 hours doing anything at all, they become an expert. That’s a lot of practice! And even if we don’t want to attain true mastery, we can start by putting in a few hours of work. Just start!… and who knows, pretty soon, you could be moving along the road to a new skill. So let’s focus on the importance of taking action, developing better habits, and repeating things until we get them right! Remember, you may not be able to do it – YET – but with enough practice, you will.

I hope you find these Practice Quotes encouraging and that they spur you on to new and better things in life!
