At this stage, it is a good time to review any goals you have already set (these can be viewed on My Dashboard) to ensure they are aligned with the summary on the previous page. If they don’t, or you haven’t set any goals as yet, now is the time to set a goal that ensures you begin what is known as 'deliberate practice'. Click on the icon below.

What is deliberate practice?

Deliberate practice is committing to demonstrating a skill or behaviour and making yourself aware of the process.

Why do it?

Consistent and regular practice has more of an exponential than a linear effect. If you practise your dance weekly, you advance very slowly over time. If you practise it daily, the jump is not linear; it is exponential. In other words, it’s a big jump, a huge jump, the kind of jump that makes the difference between good and great, mediocre and magnificent.

Getting better at something is not simply a matter of improving your knowledge on the topic. You need to practise. You need to be able to see and feel how it works for you and then experiment, tweak, refine.
