Deliberate practice

Instead of just practicing a specific skill, deliberate practice is focusing on getting feedback and using that to improve the practice.

How to get feedback?

It depends on the problem. Ideas:

  • an expert teacher, mentor or coach
  • copying and comparing to experts
  • recording yourself practicing and analyzing that
  • guided exercises with solutions
