Product description

To practice is to declare, I can be better. There are many full-stop moments in "Practice Perfec" ideas so interesting that you can t help but pause for a second and consider them. From the foreword by Dan Heath, coauthor of "Made to Stick and Switch" We love competition, the big win, the ticking seconds of the clock as the game comes down to the wire. We watch games and cheer, but if we really wanted to see greatness we d spend our time watching, obsessing on, and maybe even cheering the practice sessions instead. Practice Perfect puts the art of practice front and center. It shows that anyone, in any field, can come to appreciate that practice, not games, makes champions. In "Practice Perfect," the authors engage the dream of better. Filled with illustrative examples from top-level athletes, established teachers, seasoned lawyers, and even long-time surgeons, the authors show how deliberately engineered and designed practice can revolutionize our most important activities. The how-to rules outlined in "Practice Perfect" can make us better in virtually every performance of life. The ideas are often counterintuitive, such as: don t concentrate on your weakness, practice what you are good at. To get you started on your path to better the authors have included a number of specific activities that will jump-start your way to practicing perfect."
