We must strive for our goals, for this we need some important aspects: determination, passion and last but not least "practice". I totally agree with the young man who explained how he did to have one of the best results

I've never been able to solve Rubik's cube, there are 43 trillion combinations and I do not know any. I think there are too many algorithms, honestly this is not my favorite hobby, but I admire those who solved this cube. "Practice makes the master."

Most people think Rubik cubes are hard and some people try and still is hard but the only thing they're doing wrong is the way they turn the pieces. most people think you need to be smart to solve a Rubik's cube but you don't have to, All you need is to learn the rotation and the algorithm.

This clip shows that it takes a lot of practice to improve. Also that sharing information over the years makes everyone better. What other games/puzzles/hobbies is this true about?
