What can deliberate practice be for you

Deliberate practice requires spending lots of time outside of your comfort zone, working at the things you’re lousy at and accepting criticism from someone smarter than you. (Ashley Hamer)

I liked Ashley’s synthesis because it remind me the time I was at College.

Don’t you wish you knew this when you were at College?

But now that you know, what stops you from learning new skills?

Could it be the same reason while at College? Did you had a reason why going to College? Or did you drop out and think life was harder than you expected?

You don’t learn to survive, like our ancestors thought. You learn to evolve because that’s the outcome of what our ancestors experienced.

If deliberate practice is the key, use it. It only depends on you. No one else.
