"Deliberate practice is hard. It hurts. But it works. More of it equals better performance and tons of it equals great performance."

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Instead of mindlessly practicing a skill without improving, deliberate practice can result in better performance and in a shorter time.

We tend to think that practice means endless repetition of the same task, where the goal is to progressively become an expert. The most efficient route to expertise is not mindless practice, but deliberate practice.

Deliberate practice is focused, systematic, and purposeful.

People believe that expert performance means the performer must be endowed with talent. This is only true for some individuals.
