Deliberate practice is intentionally looking for the area that needs the most improvement, doing whatever it takes to improve it, and then repeating until excellence is achieved. It may involve a lot of trial and error and it may involve consultation with experts, but the key is that it is intentional, rather than just mindless drills.

Rolfe Carawan gave an excellent TEDx talk on the subject. Link below:

Have you ever struggled with finishing projects, or even starting them, because of your perfectionism? Are your high standards in the way? In today's episode Chere' shares thoughts about how to get stuff done without letting go of your high standards.
