How to Attack Deliberate Practice: 4 steps

Last week I shared an example of deliberate practice through the story of Kobe Bryant and his insane work ethic. Now before you can attack this idea of deliberate practice, let me help further define it for you so you know how.

Deliberate practice is a highly structured and highly engaged activity with the specific goal of improving performance. Deliberate practice is different from work, play and simple repetition of a task. It requires effort and it is not necessarily inherently enjoyable. When you engage in deliberate practice, improving your performance over time is your goal and motivation.

That’s not to say that deliberate practice can’t be designed to be fun, but it isn’t inherently enjoyable on its own. If you want to gain skills rapidly or approach expert-level status at something, you must understand the importance of deliberate practice and learn how to incorporate it into your daily process.

Now let me give you the steps to attacking deliberate practice... CONTINUE TO POST

Practice Doesn’t Make Perfect

Last week I shared with you an incredible example of success in development through the story of Clyde’s several reinventions. This week, to equip you for your own epic journey, I want to challenge you to attack the idea of deliberate practice. This is really the action plan for mastery in any endeavor you wish to excel at.

My interview with K. Anders Ericsson proved that so-called “gifted”, “talented” or “experts” aren’t people with freakish natural abilities in a particular domain. Experts, have become so, only by maintaining high-levels of practice, over a long sustained period of time and improving their performance along the way.

In other words, it’s not about what you’re born with.
It’s about how consistently and deliberately you can work to improve yourself.

Now, let’s be candid, ... CONTINUE READING

The Epic Odyssey

The entrepreneur journey is usually an epic odyssey--one YOU can succeed at as Clyde is going to prove, no matter how old (or young) or your prior experience (failure or lack thereof).

I recently visited a local California farmers’ market and met Clyde, the owner of the Desert Olive Farms booth. Clyde looks like your quintessential cowboy; but as we talked I got the sense that this guy had seen more than just a few rodeos.

Like many of the great masters of reinvention, Clyde started early... CONTINUE TO POST

Conquer Your Stress (Pt 2 of 2)

Last week I introduced you to two ways in which you can conquer the negative side of stress once and for all. To continue on our path to make you a conquistador of chronic stress, let me give you the final remaining steps. Here we go!

Number three: Don't be a blowhard!
You are NOT unique. You are not the only one to experience stress, difficulty, frustration and painful experiences. What happens to you happens to ALL of us. There is no conspiracy against only you. You are not God's little guinea pig or the laboratory rat of the universe.

We ALL experience hurt, disappointment, heartache, loss, failure, sadness, misfortune, setback, defeat, distress, despondency, despair or whatever else is causing you stress. Whatever you feel so uniquely victimized by, millions of other people have also experienced it, and likely much worse.

Something I remember learning from Jim Rohn goes something like this... CLICK TO READ MORE

Conquer Your Stress (Pt 1 of 2)

Chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide. And more than 75 percent of all physician office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.

Just in case death doesn’t get your attention, stress also makes you fat, old and stupid.

Chronic stress affects your brain, suppresses your thyroid, causes blood sugar imbalances, decreases bone density and muscle tissue, raises blood pressure, reduces your immunity and ability to heal, and increases fat deposits around your abdomen.

So essentially, you’ll want to pay attention to this BLOG or you might die, or at the least live miserably—fat, dumb and ugly. ;)

So now that I (hopefully!) have your attention, let me give you a half-dozen ways to conquer the negative side of stress once and for all... CLICK TO CONTINUE
