You are what you do


05/01/2009

This NY Times piece reinforces a number of themes from my Pragmatic Thinking & Learning book:

  • There is no expertise without experience
  • It takes something on the order of ten years/ 10,000 hours of practice to be expert in a field
  • Deliberate, thoughtful practice is what makes the difference—not just going through the motions.
  • Practice doesn't make perfect, but it does make permanent: neuroplasticity will cause your brain to re-wire itself according to what you do.
You may not become what you dream, or what you aspire to be, but you will become what you do.

This weekend is a good time to start...
