When you're trying to learn something new — like, say, making that new sales demo really sing — you need to practice. When you're trying to gain expertise, how much you practice is definitely important.

But even more important is the way you practice.

Most people simply repeat the same moves. Like playing scales on the piano, over and over again. Or going through the same list of vocabulary words, over and over again. Or, well, repeating anything over and over again in the hopes you will master that task.

Not only will your skills not improve as quickly as they could, in some cases, they may actually get worse.

According to research from Johns Hopkins, "What we found is if you practice a slightly modified version of a task you want to master, you actually learn more and faster than if you just keep practicing the exact same thing multiple times in a row." "

One of my previous posts on learning  boiled down to practicing explaining things to a child so they could understand what you are trying to say. That way you and your audience understand your info.
