Only Perfect Practice Makes Perfect

“Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.”

– Vince Lombardi quotes from

Practice What?

Oh. And how do you know that THAT new behavior and cognition set that was PRACTICED to PERFECTION – was authentic and therefore can transfer back to the job?
