Focus on doing quality practice and the progress will come.

The whole purpose of learning guitar is to progress but the irony is that the more we focus on progress the more frustrated we often become. There is actually a very good reason for this. We don’t really have control over progress. We hear all the time that we can achieve this or that if we put in the effort or have the faith. Now while it is true that putting in the effort is the only way to progress on guitar there is no guarantee that effort alone will produce a result. This is why we become frustrated and disappointed. We may even be making progress but perhaps it’s too slow or not what we were hoping for. So what is the solution? Focus on what you can control and what you can control is the quality and quantity of your practice. When we focus our attention in this way each practice session in itself feels rewarding. You should of course track your progress but just don’t get hung up on it. Focus on effort which you can control now rather than results which take time and are somewhat unpredictable.
