I repeat, "practice, dude!"

Nancy White talks about a Time to Experiment. She makes sense. As does this.

Years ago, I became bunk champ at jacks (house rules: passies five, poison eights, Boston backs, two hard and one easy fancy). How’d I do that? Practice. I can type about 90-100wpm. How? Practice. I blog… I know how to download to my iPod… I drive a standard car… all practice.

Yes, it’s a commitment, trying to learn these new “2.0” tools. Yes, it takes time from The Boys and reading. Why, then? It’s my job. Not every tool. Not every tweak. But some tools, some tweaks. When I stop practicing and get comfortable with what I’m doing, it’s time to quit.
