Deliberate practice requires intrinsic motivation - Deepstash

Deliberate practice requires intrinsic motivation

Persisting with deliberate practice needs a lot of motivation. However, the motivation needs to come from within, not from external rewards or to avoid a negative consequence. We need to enjoy getting better for its own sake.

  • Make a list of reasons you want to work on a skill and the benefits you've experienced.
  • Keep a "motivation diary" for one week, scoring your motivation level every fifteen minutes during each pratice session.
  • Find a cheerleader to help sustain motivation.
