Some more gold from this Heleo interview: “Daniel Pink and Anders Ericsson: The Secrets of Top Performers and What It Takes to Be Truly Great.”
Daniel Pink asks: “Does deliberate practice mean doing something every single day?” To which Anders Ericsson responds: “If you can make practice a habit, that’s going to make it a lot easier to engage in.” Enough said?
He goes on to caution: “It’s also important that, when you start out, you don’t try to do four or five hours. Anybody who wants to do a marathon and then goes out and runs for four or five hours is going to lie in bed for a week. You need to accept gradual change.”
