I am in the middle of this shugyo and one thing I remembered when playing the pieces during practice is that you want to perform the pieces as you play them and not think practice. It makes me play the piece the best I can which is the idea. If I think I am just practicing I tend to not take it as serious and stop in the middle of pieces. I do still practice techniques and fingering but at the same time while I am at the point in my practice where I am playing pieces I try to think of it in terms of performance. This is just something I was really concentrating on today so I thought I would share it. Performance not practice.
