Learning fast and failing fast is key to accelerating the future performer.
Learning from those who have been here already is a double accelerator. It helps orient us to the direction they faced and the decisions they made, so we can ask; ‘does that work for me too’?
It is not how long we do it but how we do it and what we focus on. There are musicians and dancers have become experts in under 5000 hrs of deliberate practice. Novice athletes have become expert performers and produced Olympic medals in 3 years. That is one end of the speed spectrum but it says quality can count for the rest of us too!
The right balance of time and attention is what wins the quality game. One-in-one-out vs one in, and another, and another...
Do you have the balance right"?
