Do today's drill and you've made it through the most laborious part of
the program.  These hand coordination exercises are critical for our
small-drum technique, but admittedly, there are a lot of possible
combinations to explore and they take a while.  After today we start
working in some new fun drills.

Friday is one of the hardest days to practice for me.  I think, "I'll
wait until tomorrow... until the weekend."  No!  Practice today *and*
tomorrow!  Convince yourself to put in your 15 minutes today and
you've made yourself a better taiko player.  You've pushed yourself
out of your normal routine to spend more time practicing.  Don't fall
back into your old routines of non-practice!  It's these moments when
you don't feel like practicing that you have the greatest opportunity
to make a dramatic difference.  Find some fun way to talk yourself
into doing today's drills.  Find some weird slice of time (even three
minutes in the bathroom, in the work lunchroom, in the car!) to
squeeze in a bit of practice!
