What is important about a Practice?

I began working on the Cultivate workshop. In working on the materials, the idea of a practice is dominating my thoughts.

The most important thing about a practice is actually doing the practice... no matter how infrequently as long as there is improvement through time. Or, as Martha Graham puts it:

“Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”
