Vince Lombardi, one of, if not the greatest coach in football history, once said, “Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect”.
A misnomer is labeling a practice a “best” practice"; a practice is only best in the specific context in which it exists.
My working definition of “practice” is: A practice is a common and adaptive approach for doing something with a specific purpose in mind. When we apply a practice we are focused on end and value-added not the means.
