Genesis Day 8: Practice makes perfect?

When was the last time you learned a new skill? Maybe a new language, a musical instrument, or a hobby, like painting or golf? You have to start at the beginning. Getting better at something, creating new habits and routines, building our “gut responses” and “instincts” – all that takes time and repetition, doesn’t it? We have to “drill” the basics in order to get somewhere, and to know how to respond when we’re met with a challenge.

Genesis Day 3: Do you love your job?

If I am not successful then, somehow, I allow my failures to infiltrate my sense of worth.
