What is DELIBERATE PRACTICE?

Some time ago, I have mentioned the work of Anders Ericsson, a leading researcher in the field of expertise development. He has demonstrated through research that building top expertise is more than raw talent a matter of long and repeated deliberate practise. Okay, deliberate practice is important, but what is it? How do practise deliberately? Stephen Dubner of the famous Freakonomics book and blog has written a post about this subject in which he neatly describes what deliberate practice is. He writes there are at least three key elements to deliberate practice:

1. Setting specific goals.
2. Obtaining immediate feedback.
3. Concentrating as much on technique as on outcome.

Read Dubner's post for more info.
