Have REALISTIC expectations when setting time-specific goals. You would not expect to get a Law degree in 6 months, do not expect to reach professional level playing in 6 months of practicing! Most people quit trying because they set unrealistic expectations and when they failed to meet them, they got discouraged and gave up.
The Solution: Test your expectations against a COACH’s experience.
Example: Over 90% of people can reach a high alternate picking speed, but less than 20% do it in less than 4 years. It is not a question of IF you CAN do it, it is rather a matter of HOW LONG before you can.
