was reading a post on how to be an expert agile team and landed in this
interesting post. It talks about what it takes to be an expert. Eye opener 🙂
only thing standing between you-as-amateur and you-as-expert is dedication.”All those talk about prodigies? We could all be prodigies (or nearly so) if we
just put in the time and focused. At least that’s what the brain guys are
saying. Best of all–it’s almost never too late.
the "naturally talented artist" was simply the one who practiced a
hell of a lot more. Or rather, a hell of a lot more deliberately.
the superior performer the goal isn’t just repeating the same thing again and
again but achieving higher levels of control over every aspect of their
performance. That’s why they don’t find practice boring. Each practice session
they are working on doing something better than they did the last time."
it’s not just how long they practice, its how they practice.
Basically, it comes down to something like this: Most of us want to practice
the things we’re already good at, and avoid the things we suck at. We stay
average or intermediate amateurs forever.
