Reach great heights

Imagine if you could captivate audiences with your impressive talents. It’s possible with the help of deliberate practice. You might think, “Eh, practice! I’ve tried that, and I learned nothing from it.”

1. You need a detailed, motivating goal for deliberate practice

First, you need a goal to practice for. Deliberate practice is all about learning small, achievable sets of skills. So, first, you need to choose a specific goal to practice. Then break it down into subskills.

3. Strengthen your weaknesses

In deliberate practice, you focus on strengthening your weaknesses. Dedicate a notebook to your practicing sessions. Write down what you need to work on and how much you progressed each day. It’s best to use tiny measurements so you can see even slight enhancements.

2. Break your goal down

For instance, to advance your painting skills to the next level , break it down into categories like color theory, perspective, drawing, and composition.

4. Practice slowly

It’s common for people to want to practice quickly, but this leads to adopting sloppy habits. The worst thing you can do is teach yourself scattered, inaccurate skills. Then you’ll spend even more time and effort trying to fix more problems.

You've got this!

  • Choose a specific goal for each practice session.
  • Break them down into subskills and practice till you get the hang of them.
  • Practice your major weaknesses slowly and in short increments of time. Or however long you can focus on it....
