Dear Baron,

I agree with my colleague Christopher's good advice.

What I tell my students who are having similar frustrations to you is this:

Slow. It. Way. Down.

Pay Attention. (notice exactly why some things aren't working the way you want them to be)

Experiement (with a slightly different angle, different muscle group, whatever you can find)

Breathe.

As you look at the problem spots through a microscope, make the tiny adjustments that make a difference for the better, breathing calmly and deeply helps the learning take hold in your brain.

-Lisa
