Weiderholung- The Power of Repitition

"I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times." Bruce Lee (at http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/b/brucelee413509.html#lMIzQL0fk4WwPxPS.99)

One word that I took to heart after my German course at Goethe Insitut was this: Weiderholung (repitition). I wrote a few lines on it and made my first speech in German at the concluding session. The speech was about making anything possible through repitition.

In India, carnatic music students are expected to practise each kirtan (hymn metered in classical style in one or more of hundreds of ragas-specific tunes) atleast a 1000 times before achieving a reasonable degree of proficiency in it.

That is the power of repitition- your proficiency in one skill will win you more successes than being half skilled in many.
