Anders Ericsson: The Expert on Experts
Some interesting insights from this podcast episode: The Malcolm Gladwell “10,000 hour rule” (i.e. it takes 10,000 hours to become world class at something) stems from Anders’ research.

The success of the US Navy’s Topgun (fighter pilot training program) largely stemmed from the methodology behind deliberate practice. The brain can be rewired to extend its capabilities at any age. There is no such thing as natural talent. Learn how building mental representations can dramatically improve performance. For many fields, the workday is far too long. It is very hard to maintain intense focus and concentration for more than 3 or 4 hours a day.
