Oh yes, practice and don't be afraid to go out on a limb and try a challenge you aren't comfortable with. And then try it over and over. You'll be surprised what you can do well when you put some time into doing it a couple of ways! I need to be more curious and seek out new techniques that I don't use. It's kind of that thing where you know what you know, you know what you don't know and you don't know what you don't know. I don't know what techniques to look for and I tend to be not-so-curious about it. This is something I have been trying to get better at.
It certainly does help to be in such a great community of people all trying to get better at the same thing!
