What would be a better word to use?

0

(has been mastered)

See example:

I do at times when doing something new question my, competency but always remind myself that practice makes better until the task has been mastered.

Just to let you know, you are missing some commas, which would help your flow, greatly, should they be included.

 

I do, at times, when doing something new, question my competency; but, always remind myself that practice makes better, until the task has been mastered.

 

"proficient" is related to "mastered", but, I don't know that it would actually be better to use.  In fact, I'd go a totally different way, I think, like:

 

"There are times I question my abilities, when learning a new task; but, I remind myself that practice makes perfect."   or 

 

"Until the task is mastered, I have to remind myself that I am learning, and, that proficiency is not expected."   or 

 

"I always remind myself that I am in the process of learning, when doing something new, and, that proficiency is learned."

Arletta is right. I would only add that after the semi-colon (;), be sure you have another subject. For example, ". . .; but, I always remind myself that practice improves my skill, until the skill is mastered." KimberlyMay 02 '11 at 18:08
