I was going to say the best practice (I play piano) is where you try to be hyperaware to correct mistakes.... And some practice is just to warm up or keep skills in play. Not practicing in the latter case makes whatever it is decay much faster.

Then again, the spirit of the quote is spot on. I think the issue isn’t just what one is doing but everything else. Think of playing poker. The correct plays will lose though lose less often on average than incorrect ones, but that’s because the rest of the game is not exactly the same each time.
