The neurological “success” aspect behind deliberate practice in any activity is myelin.
Myelin is a fatty tissue created by oligodendrocytes around neurons, acting like an insulator that allows neurons to fire faster and cleaner.

On the other hand, when you do shallow work with low concentration, you fire multiple neural circuits simultaneously and haphazardly, which leads to no value.
