When a musician practices to improve his performance, what is he measuring his performance against? Don't you think he/she has some ideal or goal in mind which practice will raise the performance to? Or do you think any improvement is merely serendipitous and they are only able to see improvement after the fact? That would be a position I can't agree with. I've spent too much time adjusting my hold, my release, my breathing, my coordination just to put a bullet in the center of a target. I knew exactly what I wanted my mind and body to do for me. It just took a long time and a lot of practice to get them to do it.
