When humans are in stressful situations, we tend to fall back on our practice.
Skip steps now, you’ll skip them later. Cut corners now, you’ll cut them later. You get used to what you do most of the time.
You’ll play like you practice. You’re not going to be sharp unless you practice being sharp. I’ve heard this again over the years.
I have personally experienced a few falls in my life owing to sloppy practice.
Be conscious. Always practice hard! You will play hard!
