The teachable moments YOU create
An important part of your growth is finding and exploiting your own teachable moments.
Not only should we learn from our mistakes, but sometimes we should spotlight the things we get right, and not only celebrate them, but closely examine them.
Try to figure out what you think you did right, how you did it, and what were the factors, internal and external, that helped to facilitate the results you got.
I usually try to relive the process, from how I may have been looking at the subject, thinking about it, the approach and techniques I used, to even the way I held the pen or pencil. You don't want the time you got the shading right to be a fluke or a once-in-a-blue thing. You want that to become a natural part of your process.
So be on the look out for those times, try to isolate what you did right, then put that into deliberate practice. Master it, then look out for the next one.
