ML77: How To Learn through Deliberate Practice
Deliberate practice is more than just doing something over and over again – it’s carefully structured and goal directed and consists of repeated striving to reach beyond current performance levels.
Research on neuroplasticity tells us that this type of deliberate practice changes the structure of the brain and allows us to perform at higher levels.
But practicing the right way at the right time is more complex than just doing the thing – because you need to eliminate barriers to practice, prioritise for fast feedback and maintain a balance between quantity and quality.
In this short episode, I'm joined by Will Reynolds - writer, videographer and all around MetaLearner. We discuss a range of topics including:
- How to manage the tradeoff between quantity and quality of practice
- How to reflect on your progress to calibrate accurately
- How to build learning habits so that the process of practicing becomes automatic, allowing you to focus on improving
So whether you're looking to play a new instrument, pick up a new sport or learn to code, this episode will give you the ideas you need to structure your learning and get those crucial hours of high quality work in so that you can make progress faster, more efficiently and more enjoyably.
