Deliberate Practice

  • The most effective way to get better at something is to engage in deliberate practice
  • When practicing something, work on something just outside your current abilities
  • Stay actively focused on the current task. Consider using focus techniques such as Pomodoro.
    • Practice time is not sufficient. Deliberate practice time is required.
    • The 10,000 Hours rule applies to deliberate practice, not coasting
  • Do not multi-task. Multitasking is almost universally a bad idea and results in the belief that more work is getting done, when really less is getting done and your practice isnโ€™t deliberate.
