In anything, there are people who get good, and people who get REALLY good.
There has been a lot of research into why people get REALLY good at something.
Today I’m going to talk about something else.
Playing the violin.
In 1993 a group of scientists (Anders Ericsson, Ralf Krampe Clemens Tesch-Römer) decided to try and find out why some violinists become good, but others become REMARKABLE.
They found that people who get good practise a lot.
But people who get REALLY good practise in very focused, very intense sessions.
They know what to do. And how to do it.
This is what having a consistent system, a structure does for you.
It is like a plan, or a map. You know EXACTLY what to do, how and why.
I made a video about this. I compare learning English to this research, and to muscle training.
Watch it here:
That’s the basic idea.
