[05/12, 11:40] Let me affirm once again how important it is to maintain a steady practice routine. Set aside a time period for practicing every day when you are at your best, and stick to it. Take a few moments to think about the best goals for each practice session before you start. At the end of the day, think about what you worked on, what was achieved, what remains to be done, and how you will continue the next day. The purpose of the assignment to keep a practice diary is to get you into the habit of reflecting on your practicing so that your goal setting can become more useful. Remember, under all circumstances, lock-down or no lock-down, you should be your own teacher every day: set goals, be objective, experiment to find the best solutions, seek out the best possible examples to emulate, ask advice if you need to, etc.
