If you don't have a teacher, Hanon exercises can help. Especially if you follow the instructions given at the beginning. Play the exercises with rhythm variations and in different keys. After you finish the Hanon exercises you should move on to the ones by Brahms. However, if practiced incorrectly, the Brahms exercises can cause unnecessary strain. Be sure to buy an edition with the fingerings already notated.

If you dont have a proper teacher and/or dont fully understand how improving technique (with its risks) works, stay off technical exercise like Hanon.

About the initial post: You're obviously not ready for this etude, go pick another one that is more to your level.
