When an actor or a musician develops her skills and learns her repertoire, she repeats the work over and over. This is done for two reasons: 1. Memorization is taking place and 2. The skill is being perfected.
In order to prepare for a test, a presentation, or a performance, one has to learn the material and be able to demonstrate competence. This can only happen through repetition.
To do the same thing repeatedly may not seem very interesting, but it is very valuable when working toward a goal. It is the repetition that allows you to build on your foundation and create a great product.
