Yet. This is one of the most important words in my guitar studio. I teach it to all my students. “Yet” is the explanation of a learning curve. It is a positive point of view. It works like this:

- I can’t play these chords…yet.

- I don’t know how to coordinate my right hand and left hand…yet.

You get the idea.

Of course, you can try this with non-musical problems. Anything that you are attempting to do or learn can be tempered by the addition of the word Yet. What it really means is that you eventually WILL be able to do, or know, whatever it is.

Side note: lose the word “but” from your vocabulary. Replace it with the words “and so” and you will be the road to a much more positive approach to…well, everything!
