You’ve heard the saying – ‘practice makes perfect’…yet what if there is more to that?
Professor Ericcson says there is.
In fact he goes so far as to say you can have ‘naïve practice’ or more importantly ‘purposeful practice’.
Let’s have a look at purposeful practice
Prof Ericsson says…
“Purposeful practice has well-defined, specific goals.”
“Purposeful practice is focused.”
“Purposeful practice involves feedback.”
Purposeful practice requires getting out of one’s comfort zone.”
Consider how you could bring these into your next study session, work session, project and any other area that includes and requires practice.
“With deliberate practice…the goal is not just to reach your potential but to build it, to make things possible that were not possible before.” (Ericsson)
