Why practice DOESN’T make perfect?!

Posted by Gediminas Grinevicius on Sunday, February 23, 2020 Under: Personal Development

The title of today's blog is why practice doesn't make perfect. How many of you have heard a saying, “Practice makes perfect? Practice makes perfect. If you just practice, it will be perfect. If you just keep doing it, you will make it perfect.” It's not true guys.

Let me explain to you why. Imagine I have this word document here, and I have this but it's not printed yet. It's on my computer. Imagine I have a Word document on my computer and in that Word document, there is a mistake, but I haven't noticed that mistake when I was making the document on my computer. So what I do after I finished the document, I go print and the document comes out of my printer. I take it I go, “Mmh, there's a mistake here. Let me press print again, print.” Comes out again, the mistake is still there. Let me keep pressing print, print, print, print, print, how long can I keep pressing print, and the mistake, the error will still going to be on the document? Forever, right? I got to keep pressing print. Unless I go back to the document and fix the error, it will keep coming out of the printer.

Now why the heck I'm saying about that to you? Well, your business is exactly the same way. If you're not getting results in your business, if you're not making the amount of money that you want to be making in your business, if you're not recruiting as many people as you'd like to be recruiting, if you're not selling as much as you like to be selling, there's a big chance there's an error in your practice, there's an error in your daily method, there's an error in your strategies, there's an error in your system that you're using. And if that error is there, you can keep practicing, you can keep doing it, it's never going to be perfect because you'll keep repeating the error and repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. That's the first sign of insanity, as Einstein said, right?

If you're new, of course, just do it, just start doing something so you can see what works and what doesn't. But if you've been in the business for a while, and you're not getting the result that you want to be getting, and you're not making the money that you'd like to be making, there's a chance that you have to go back, change the error, and then keep practicing.

So you know what makes perfect. Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect, meaning once you tweaked your system, once you tweaked your processes, once you tweaked your action where you know it works, when you know it produces a result, then yes, just keep practicing, just keep doing it, keep doing it, keep doing it, and then you can explode your business.

And this is one of the reasons why you need to stick to the systems that your leadership, that your mentors are supplying you with. Because again, there is a group of people in network marketing, there's a group of people in business, who refuse to follow instructions, who refuse to do it by the system. And these people, usually they'll join the team, and they'll say, “Yeah, but I'm going to do it my way. I know you have the system. I know you have this process that works. But I'm going to do it my way. Okay, okay. I'm going to do it my way.” And I always say, “Yeah, no problem, as long as you're happy not making money.” And that usually gets their attention and they go, “What, I'm not happy not making money. What do you mean by that?” Well, what I mean by that, if you follow the system, the system has been proven and tested to work, if you start changing it, if you start doing it your way, then there's a big chance that that system will stop working, there's a big chance that you will stop getting results.

And same goes to people who've been in the business for a while, if you used to get results at the beginning and now you stopped getting results, there's a big chance that you stopped using the system or that you started changing the system because you got bored with it. Never do that. Always go back and review. That's why you need to go back to basics once in a while.

Like we just went to Las Vegas to GoPro, it's the third time that we went to the GoPro recruiting mastery. And every year it's not exactly the same, but part of it what Eric Wore does, the seven skills, the seven fundamental skills is the same thing. It doesn't change. The seven skills were the same three years ago as they are today. I still find it useful, because it reminds me about the basics, because it reminds me about what works, because that stuff is fundamentals.

That stuff worked 30 years ago, network marketing, it works today, network marketing. Now the technologies change, the techniques change, 30 years ago, we didn't have Facebook and Instagram and MailChimp and ads and things like that. We did business, but the fundamentals are the same. So getting back to those basics sometimes helps you to figure out, “Hey, I used to use this and it worked and I stopped using it. Let me go back to keep using it.”

That’s my training and tip for you. Hope you got value some value in this blog post, if you did, feel free to share it with other people.
