Practice isn't enough. In fact practice, if done incorrectly, can be a huge, crippling hindrance. This is counter-intuitive to most

I blame that saying about "practice makes perfect". Practice doesn't make perfect. Practice makes routine, and practice makes consistent, but, if you practice doing something wrong, the practice will not make you perfect, it will make you routinely, consistently wrong. (Well, unless you distort the meaning of "perfect" enough to say that your wrongness will be perfect, I guess...)
