In order to do something the right way you have to start by doing it anyway. Usually, you’ll have to do it several if not many times before you get it right. That’s called practice.

Some things we have to practice all our lives just to get it right, and maybe we never do (get it right, that is).

Others we have to practice daily just to maintain a standard (a musical instrument, relationship skills, compassion, sport, positive expectation…). There’s a long list.

With so many things, it is not by their completion that we should judge ourselves, but by their execution. For these there should be no “right way”, only “my way”.
