Nice article about practising

“It’s not how much you practice but whether you’re quick to fix your errors that leads to mastery.”

Thanks for posting. I made some pretty good progress today after reading the article. I made a concerted effort to pay more attention to why I was going wrong instead of just thinking that wasn’t right let me try it again…

If that resonates with you guys then be sure to check out, Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else:

http://www.amazon.com/Talent-Overrated-World-Class-Performers-EverybodyElse/dp/1591842247

The book covers a few areas of talent like chess and golf, but also cover in depth learning instruments - about what really separates the world class from the rest.

(There’s a few other good books of this ilk I can post, if people are interested)

It’s kind of the idea behind JP’s newest lessons - the Happy Harpin’ course removes inefficient practice and gets you focusing on the important areas. Really cool stuff.

Cheers,
Chris

When I was failing at Golf, my instructor used to say “Practice makes Permanent.”
