This came up during a training session this afternoon… Is it more important to get it right, or not give up?
Every situation is unique, and when you are learning how to do an exercise, it is certainly important to try to get it right, because practicing a move badly will just ingrain a bad move.
But I can’t stress the importance of simply not giving up. Because as long as you don’t give up, you keep the possibility of improvement alive. As soon as we give up, the chances of improving vanish.
So yes, always try to make things better, but the process of making things better is through experience. And giving up is the surest way of losing any more experience.
Don’t give up.
