Last thing before bed was practice, and first thing this morning was practice. I can get used to this.
Two additional thoughts on making practice more effective:
1) Choose concrete, measurable goals. "I'm going to practice every day for the next 100" is nice, but it's not the same as, "By the end of this 100 days, I'm going to learn the following three pieces..." or "Here's a list of tunes I want to learn. I'm going to learn one a week, for the next ten weeks" etc etc.
What happened to me at the end of the last 100 days is that I finished up the campaign with no idea if I had progressed or not. I shoulda coulda woulda made a list of goals, if I'd thought of it. It seemed like 100 days was a goal enough; it wasn't.
2) Keep a journal. It helps you track what you did. It helps you structure your time. Look back through it from time to time to remind yourself of what you've been working on , and what you've forgotten to work on. There's not much to it: Get a calendar/diary journal book. Borders sells them cheaply. At the beginning of your session, jot down what you plan to do. At the end of your session, comment on how well you did it. Look at the weak points, and write them down in your entry for tomorrow. Tomorrow, you won't forget to work on those things.
I didn't do this very consistently in my first 100 days. And for the last seven days of this session, I've been trying to find my journal. (See "Keeping your work space clean"... a few days ago. Another weak point in my regime....) Finally located it today, after my session. It was in our bedroom (???) under a pile of clothes that needs to be hung up in the closet. (See previous sentences. )
Today, I tell myself: Clean your house. It helps.
