|What is Deliberate Practice?
Deliberate Practice: "is an activity that's explicitly intended to improve performance by reaching
for objectives just beyond your level of competence, while providing objective feedback on results
involving high levels of repetition."
“Confidence is the most important single factor in this game, and no
matter how great your natural talent, there is only one way to obtain
and sustain it: WORK.” Jack Nicklaus
Deliberate Practice is about changing your performance, setting new “standards” and straining
yourself to reach a bit higher each time. It involves you deciding to improve something and
setting up training conditions to attain the skill. Deliberate practice is designed specifically to
improve performance. The key word is "designed."
“It isn’t magic, and it isn’t born. It happens because some critical things line up so that a
person of good intelligence can put in the sustained, focused effort it takes to achieve
extraordinary mastery. These people almost always have very supportive environments,
and they almost always have important mentors. And the one thing they always have is an
incredible investment of effort.” Anders Ericsson
As a performance coach, I’ve developed “Deliberate practice” systems, which fill the massive gap
between technical and mental instruction. I’ve devised programs that focus on the “physical."
These programs feature “high-stress” learning techniques, which improve scoring, and golf
swings while virtually eliminating doubt, fear and anxiety.
