When was the last time you practiced your guitar? Better yet, when was the last time you made a significant breakthrough in your guitar playing?
If you're like most of us guitar players, it probably feels like you're on a never ending roller coaster of guitar progress...
One day you're on top of the world feeling confident and super excited at what lies ahead... the next, you're left feeling dizzy and nauseous, wondering what just happened.
Lucky for you, there is a way to end this vicious cycle and make your practice more consistent and productive from day to day.
What is this secret to amazingly productive guitar practice?
Answer: Daily Practice
...or at least as close to "daily" as you can get (I let myself take a day off here and there, but my rule is that I can't miss 2 days in a row).
I know that seems hard, or nearly impossible to some of you, but I have a little secret that'll boost your chances of success...
Only hold yourself accountable for a few minutes of practice everyday.
What exactly does that do? How can you be productive in just a few minutes a day?
Well... you can't. You definitely need to practice more than just a few minutes each day.
The problem is... more than a few minutes will feel like a chore and you're less likely to stick to a daily practice commitment.
Let me ask you this: Which of the following are you more likely to implement EVERYDAY?
Practicing for 30 minutes a day, or 3 minutes a day?
I'll bet that if you only had to practice 3 minutes a day you're pretty likely to commit to it... every... single... day. In fact, I'll bet there would be some days where you would feel like practicing more than 3 minutes.
And by all means... you should practice as much as you'd like.
The reason this works so well is that it is very easy to commit to 3 minutes (or 10, or whatever you choose) a day. Who doesn't have 3 minutes, right?
In addition to the easy commitment, it will naturally lead to longer practice sessions, more often. Here's the story:
You have to "prime the pump," so to speak.
It's not the 3 minutes a day that is going to give you incredible results. It's the overall daily commitment to picking up your guitar that makes the difference.
So even when you absolutely do not feel like practicing (and making up all sorts of excuses not to) it's easy to say to yourself... "but it's only 3 minutes."
The 3 minutes a day is there to act as a safety net for the days you're not feeling into it. You can just play for 3 measly minutes and be done with it, yet still be satisfied that you stuck with your daily commitment.
And for the days that you do feel like practicing... the 3 minutes acts as a primer to get your creative juices flowing and prepare you for a rewarding, productive practice session.
The bottom line is...
Short practice sessions make it easy to stick with a daily commitment to practice your guitar....
...and when you pick it up and play everyday, you're likely to get in some longer sessions here and there...
...and before you know it, you could be averaging 30 minutes to an hour of daily practice.
