A tourist had just arrived in Manhattan with tickets to a concert and didn't know his way around. The curtain time for the show was fast approaching and the tourist was becoming increasing desperate to find the venue.
Finally, he approached a man walking swiftly and carrying a violin case, a sign he might have knowledge of the local entertainment industry.
"Excuse me," said the tourist, and the hurrying man looked up.
"Can you tell me how to get to Carnegie Hall?" queried the lost and desperate man.
The man with the violin case paused briefly and stared intensely at the tourist. After a beat, he spat "Practice!!!" and hurried on his way.
To get good at something, you practise. It's that simple. Learning and repeating what others have done is one of the more effective ways of practising.
