World-class Performance Is Not The Result Of Innate Talent Alone

World-class Performance Is Not The Result Of Innate Talent Alone

While some may believe that world-class performance comes when you have a natural talent to do it, the truth cannot be farther. With deliberate, distraction-free and regular practice, you can become a world-class performer in your field as well and the next ideas will inform you about the steps required to achieve that state.

(Bonus: Do not forget to read the last quote. It’s from Talha Mumtaz and you may be able to related with the insight more than anybody else).

Who Is K. Anders Eriksson?

Who Is K. Anders Eriksson?

K. Anders Eriksson js a true pioneer when it comes to exploring material around outstanding performances and deliberate practice. He is actually the person on whose work the 10,000 rule is based on. A few years ago, he arranged everything in his book “Peak” and this book is a non-sensical approach to learning deliberate practice and how to reach the peak performance in your life.

4-step Approach To Mastery

4-step Approach To Mastery

K. Anders Eriksson writes a 4-step approach to reach the optimum state especially when trying to push your limits. This 4-step approach has been undertaken by one of his associates to truly achieve remarkable performance when memorising long strings of numbers. Here are the 4 steps:

1- Have a clear goal (lose 10 KG weight in 60 days)

2- Stay focused with no distractions (cycling, eating healthy, and exercising without missing your routine)

3- Consistently push yourself (cycle 1 KM on day one. Then 2 KM on day 3 and so on)

4- Get feedback (ask friends to join and regularly talk about progress)

Practice Becomes Deliberate When It’s Guided

Practice Becomes Deliberate When It’s Guided

Do you know the difference between good and great? It depends on how fast you can reach the next levels without hurting yourself. To achieve that, your practice needs to be well-guided and systematic. Eriksson gives you a two-step approach to this:

1- The more developed your area of expertise is, the better and faster you will be nurtured. If there is more information and experts available, you’d be able to get better faster.

2- You need to work with an expert, trainer or a coach who knows his stuff. The more he can guide you, the more steps you can skip and get pro faster.

Even The Greatest Talent Is Result Of Deliberate Practice

Even The Greatest Talent Is Result Of Deliberate Practice

Mozart, Picasso, and Ronaldo all are not just natural talent but also the result of deliberate training and practice. Mozart received excellent training from his father and put a lot of years in practice before he was being recognised as the greatest talent. You can do the same by practising regularly and deliberately and believe me, there will be a time when you will reach your ultimate state and become the greatest talent in your field.

TALHA MUMTAZ

And lastly, if you’re a fan of Dragon Ball Z, you may have seen Goku transitioning from Saiyan to Super Saiyan, Blue Saiyan and ultimately Ultra Instinct Goku. This isn’t a result of talent but due to massive training and Goku’s ability to practice deliberately. He also fights and trains with the best warriors in the universe so as to skip steps and become the best fighter in the universe. You can combine some learnings from Goku and K. Anders Eriksson’s book and reach your Peak state likewise.
