The rules of deep practice

Choose one goal beyond your present abilities.

  • Chunk it up: Break the thing you’re trying to master down into chunks and master them one by one, then put them back together.
  • Repetition: Repeat skills slowly and ensure to do them properly. Mistakes show a lack of competence in that area and should be viewed as an opportunity to improve. Repetition of mistakes will train the mistakes.
  • Feel the struggle: Pick a target, reach for it, and adjust as you go.
