Any Skill You're Not Practicing Is Wasting Away

Any Skill You're Not Practicing Is Wasting Away
Eric Ravenscraft

Everyone’s heard the old adage, practice makes perfect. Practice isn’t just for building skills, though. It’s also for maintaining the ones you’ve already built.
As advice site The Art of Manliness explains,
the skills you have already built can fade over time.
Through disuse and neglect, your brain can start to forget
even the most well-practiced skills if you go a long period of time without using them.
It doesn’t happen overnight, but practicing a little bit every once in a while can stave off
the erosion of useful skills:
We often feel like we can leave parts of ourselves dormant, and they’ll just stay as they are — waiting for us to start developing them again. But the truth is that all the components
of our physical and mental make-up operate by the “use it or lose it” principle.
All of life involves swimming against the current of deterioration
— if you’re not constantly putting in the effort to advance, you’re getting swept back.

Of course, we can only choose so many skills to practice, so it may be a valid choice
to let a particular skill die off. As much as I enjoyed the game as a kid,
my skills playing Jet Force Gemini are not very practical to my adult life.
However, if you want to keep your ability to play that instrument, do that workout,
or speak that language, you should probably keep practicing even when you don’t need to.

The more that you learn; the more places you'll go.”
