Every process needs persistence to yield long-term results.
Here are a few tips I try to live by to run away from the beginner feeling.
Make periodicity your friend.
Engage in your craft daily.
(If you can't, try to show up on a weekly or biweekly basis.)
But again, make periodicity your friend.
Otherwise, you'll repeatedly feel like a beginner.
You'll find yourself getting back at your practice, over and over again.
Show up daily instead to minimize that friction.
