LIFE HACK #034

In the pursuit of mastery, the age-old adage "practice makes perfect" has echoed through generations. However, the truth lies in a nuanced reality—practice doesn't make perfect; it makes permanence.

Scientifically, the brain consolidates habits, whether right or wrong, through repetition. By practicing incorrectly, you're inadvertently engraining errors, steering yourself further from perfection.

Neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to rewire, doesn't distinguish between right and wrong; it solidifies patterns. 

To truly excel, focus on perfect practice—precise, intentional, and make sure you’re practicing the right technique, system, etc.

LIFE HACK #035

Did you know the phrase “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” is in that specific order for a reason? It’s true.

First and foremost, reducing our consumption takes center stage—minimizing our ecological footprint by making less purchases.

Next in line is the art of reuse, breathing new life into these items destined for disposal. By prioritizing the initial reduce phase first, we actively curb the influx of materials that needs to be recycled.

Recycling, the final tier, then becomes a solution, reserved for items beyond the realms of reduction and reuse.
