The term "deliberate practice" is mostly attributed to Karl Anders Ericsson, an influential figure in the field of performance psychology. Deliberate practice turns amateurs into professionals. It creates top performers in any field.
Doing something regularly but mindlessly is not the same as practicing it. Deliberate practice means repeatedly performing a set of activities with the intention of improving the specific skill.
Design thinking is a methodology to innovate new designs into products and services and can be applied to many other problems in our lives, including how we live them.
Designers who get stuck in various design problems, complications and unforeseen situations try to find innovative solutions and work on their problems in a creative way. This is because what they are doing hasn’t been done before.
It is a set of three lists used to classify educational learning objectives into levels of complexity and specificity. They concentrate specifically on learning objectives in the cognitive domain (knowledge-based), affective (emotion-based) and psychomotor domains (action-based).
These three models were named after Benjamin Bloom, the author of Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: The Classification of Educational Goals.
Depending on the nature of the task, inductive and deductive reasoning can be used in combination.
Researchers use inductive reasoning to formulate theories and hypotheses. Then they use deductive reasoning for evaluating their theories in specific situations.
The instructions tell a computer how to transform a set of facts into useful information.
The facts are data. The useful information is knowledge for people, instructions for machines or input for another algorithm. Typical examples are sorting sets of numbers or finding routes through maps.
An antilibrary is a private collection of mostly unread books. It is not an ego-boosting appendage but a research tool.
It should contain a collection of resources around themes you are curious about. It should include as many unread books as your financial means allows you to put there. The more knowledge you accumulate, the larger the rows of unread books.
For at least two thousand years, our minds have been wandering away from the object of focus.
Mind-wandering is a factor of a human mind and varies according to how vivid a person’s thoughts are, how deep into the thought the mind goes, and how many of those thoughts are fear-based(like guilt or worry).
Mind-wandering is common in monotonous jobs and may be useful too.
Most of us have a simple, cause-to-effect relationship with our surroundings and the events that unfold in our lives. We try to solve problems using a linear-thinking model, resulting in inconstant consequences. This is known as The Cobra Effect.
Linear thinking assumes that there will be no unpredictable side-effects and nothing unusual or unexpected will happen, which may or may not be the case.
One of the strange effects of conformity is that the decisions made as a group are prejudiced, biased and less intelligent than those made by an individual.
When people interact, they do not normally want to learn something new but are much happier conforming to their already existing beliefs. They agree with the other group members and make typically worse decisions.
