Let's talk a little bit about how difficult it is to get started practicing. It's a common theme among most musicians that I know, as practice can seem overwhelming so we procrastinate. I do this all the time. I'm not alone, as people have written books and essays about it.
To quote a Nike commercial, "Just Do It". I know that was kind of lame, but it's true. I find when I force myself to sit down and start and just do it, I get into it very quickly and enjoy it. I think fear of failure plays a large part in the fear of practice. We have to remember that the only person we want to answer to is ourselves.
