Deliberate Practice - to be whatever you want

Deliberate Practice

How to get really good at almost anything

- Accelerate your growth

- Become an expert

- Reach your potential

What the research says about achieving peak performance:

1. Work mostly on your weakness with specific goals that increase in challenge.

2. Focus on the little things - break down the skills into the smallest possible pieces and work on those until you consistently get them right.

3. Repetition is fundamental. It is boring but it is the only way to mastery.

4. Concentration during practice is also essential (intense concentration).

5. Spend time training alone, not just alongside of others.

*** Less enjoyable and more effortful activities are the best type if you are serious about getting to the next level.

6. Get regular feedback on your performance from an expert -- candid feedback that you use.

7. Study deeply the best in your field.


The foundation for excellence

- Top performers invest a lot more times than everyone else.

- Time invested

- Grit (passion, perseverance)

- Humility to learn

- Top performers are eager for correction and improvement.

How to Retire a Millionaire by 30

Brandon, who asked to withhold his last name to maintain his privacy, has been living out of a 128-square-foot truck for over a year to save on rent.
His advice for making early retirement a reality.
1. Make a plan
"Get a plan together as soon as you can," he tells CNBC. "The sooner you have a plan, the sooner you'll see your contributions compounding into something meaningful and substantial."
2. Maximize tax-advantaged accounts
Figure out which tax-advantaged accounts you have available to you and how much you can contribute to them.
3. Streamline
Finally, "evaluate your priorities and cut out the cruft from your life," says Brandon. (Cruft is a coding-derived word for redundant and unnecessary clutter.)
Overall, Brandon says, "decreasing your spending is usually a lot easier and more effective than increasing your income." Plus, reining in your spending is something you can start doing right away. It's within your control.

And, while the ideal time to establish a plan for financial independence is when you first enter the workforce, he says, "the second best time is now."

How to Strengthen Self-Control

From Wikipedia and
Self-control is a cognitive process that is necessary for regulating one's behavior in order to achieve goals. The key suggestion from Forbes is the following concepts:

1. Meditate
Meditation actually trains your brain to become a self-control machine. Buddhist monks appear calm and in control for a reason.

2. Eat
Eating somthing that provides a slow burn for your body, such as whole grain rice or meat, will give you a longer window of self-control. If your blood sugar is low, you are far more likely to succumb to destructive impulses.

3. Excercise
Getting your body moving for as little as 10 minutes releases GABA, a neurotransmitter that makes your brain feel soothed and keeps you in control of your impulses.

4. Sleep
It links to #2, your brain's ability to control impulses is nil without glucose.

5. Ride the wave
When the impulse you need to control is strong, waiting out this wave of desire is usually enough to keep yourself in control.

6. Forgive yourself
When you slip up, it is critical that you forgive yourself and move on. Don't ignore how the mistake makes you feel; just don't wallow in it. Instead, shift your attention to what you are going to do to improve yourself in the future.
