As kids we were told that if we wanted to get good at something we needed to practice. That practice makes perfect.

As adults we know that practice doesn't necessarily make perfect, but it is imperative to mastering a skill. It doesn't matter if it's cycling, cooking, or parenting, we must practice if we want to get better. And, in fact, if we do something long enough — even without a degree — we can become Experts at any number of things.
