193 Pieces by Liszt Added to Piano Street's Sheet Music Library
The latest addition to our already vast piano sheet music library almost doubles the number of pieces by Franz Liszt. Last week, we added 193 pieces by this multifaceted composer, taking a significant step towards our goal of publishing a complete library of the classical piano repertoire. Our Liszt section is now nearly complete, but more will follow - with this extremely productive and hard-working composer-pianist it's hard to know where to stop! Read more >>

When?  In terms of getting results.

Which suggests how?  I would imagine I'm working hard enough but maybe not enough.  And maybe inefficiently, so better efficiency/ease would improve things with the same or less effort.  Or I'm just not putting in enough time or even actually hitting an area even though I think I am.

Potentially just more time in.

vs. Paying more attention to the status of things and adjusting the routine from there.

The importance of backing off and recovering for true progress.

Backing off for better recovery and adjusting a plan to push based on status.  But that's easier said than done.  And knowing when it's pushing as much as possible, being as effective/efficient as possible for making true progress.

Something about this.  Which is capturing a push, making a push happen.....

the push
ready state
actual push, with a good squeeze
probably more push, to see if there's more squeeze/room available

Lack of sleep and paying for it later.

Taking into account status of things with a push -- Status now, what will happen with a push, how that factors into recovering from the push, etc.

Well....I'm wondering how I can improve my interest in piano cos it's not strong enough for me to feel strongly when I play/practice :') I like music a lot, but idk why practicing is unenjoyable at times 🧐

Lack of focus, lack of practice mass, something that I just forgot...

And something about measuring and being able to plan out progress based on working on scales in sixths.

How I missed scales in sixths.  I even told someone I knew scales in sixths, but that was just using 1-4 and 1-5 for everything.

I think... It was around Valentine's Day 2004 when I found the site.  So another 14 months, and I'll been here for 20 years, two decades...

Something about capturing progress and 'explosive' movement in terms of control.... For springiness, but also as an area I'm not thinking about, so it's not happening.  Being aware of a lack of info/ignorance.  And if that exists, what else is missing like that?

When things start drying out from getting pushed or with a routine (but still a push that way), backing off is wise.  Or prepping for a push by backing off is wise.  But then to determine when things are recovered, it needs another little push.   

And occasionally backing off and then doing a bigger push (either capacity or endurance) is probably wise too.

I recently got my driver's licence after 7 months of hard work studying and having driving lessons. The theory part can definitely be a lot. (Or it depends on the country maybe)
