What does it take to be great at what you do? How many hours of work does it really take to become an ‘expert’? What if you could shorten that time, and get even better results in the process?
Believe it or not, expertise and high achievement isn’t just about putting in the time; it’s about putting in the right kind of effort with an emphasis on high-value execution, a discipline called Deliberate Practice.
With a profound hat tip to Dr. Angela Duckworth, author of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, listen in as we peel back the curtain on the science of high achievement and what it takes to develop greatness through deliberate practice.
In this episode, we discuss:
– How honing in on one small aspect of your mission could exponentially increase performance
– Why focusing on “doing it better” is more effective than “being prefect”
– What happens when we apply full concentration and 100% attention on a single action
– Why focusing on what you didn’t do as well as you’d like can lead to improvement
– How to use feedback to calibrate and refine your execution
– and more
Plus, we examine Duckworth’s “cycle of skill development” and how to apply it to your business, career and life.
