I'd argue practice makes permanent. Good or bad. Depends how you are practicing something doesn't it?
I can practice incorrectly as easily as correctly. Thus, the need for correction from others or even yourself.
Learning something is a process and i doubt most catch on perfectly at every step.

I think loving what you are practicing makes all of the difference. That said, practicing makes you more comfortable in what you're doing, opening the door wider to your theoretical inherent skill/talent/creativity, I almost want to say.
But I think the type of thinking/feeling necessary to learn different things is very important. Some people might just not have as adept a mind at the mental/physical processes used to learn chess, learn to play drums, juggle, etc.

I think one can practice too much in the sense that it takes time for the brain to assimilate what is practiced. For instance, if I practice a complicated riff on my bass, after a while I get pretty good at it, but it's not perfect. If I wait a few hours or a day and pick up the bass again, miraculously I can now play that part better than I could the day before.
My brain has had time to re-wire itself. Hmm...maybe if I stop thinking for a few days that task may get better, too. That would really be miraculous.

Perfect practice makes perfect.
"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light. Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "
