A great reminder from Prem Rawat via young Ali Sherazi.
On top of critically thinking about which mental states we regularly practice, I have a pragmatic skill improvement personal story as well that hopefully inspires.
Myself, I have Go and Sudoku games on my smart phone. When I have a few minutes free, I play them. On Go, I level up when I beat a level, so over time I've managed to now play on the hardest level. For sudoku, I no longer with an eraser enabled, I only enter numbers I've sure of -- and I've made it to the second highest level in my app. I was terrible when I started both of these, but only after years of playing them, have a become better. Once I get to the top level on Sudoku, I plan on installing cognitive enhancement game, dual n back.
