Most people who think they are working hard are merely developing the skill of being in the gym, not the skill of making baskets.

"What feels like struggle and frustration is often skill development and growth. What looks like little pay and no recognition is often the price you have to pay to discover your best work. In other words, what looks like failure is often the foundation of success."

""When most people talk about working hard, they use the amount of time they worked as an indicator of how hard they worked. (i.e. “I worked 60 hours this week!”)

Putting in a lot of time might make you tired, but simply working a lot (even if it's 10,000 hours over the course of your career) isn't enough to make you a top performer. It's not the same thing as practicing deliberately. Most people who think they are working hard are merely developing the skill of being in the gym, not the skill of making baskets.""

Better with goals this week then!

Not a single person produced incredible work without putting in a decade of practice first. Even a genius like Mozart had to work for at least ten years before he produced something that became popular. Professor Hayes began to refer to this period, which was filled with hard work and little recognition, as the “ten years of silence.”

Giselle Petzinger

In the motor learning field this would be called intensity (frequency), feedback (success or not) and variable (also called random) practice. For example, random practice more than single block practice. In other words- For each shot mixing up the distances and the location of the point of the shot is important- called random or variable practice. As opposed to Block practice- where the player would stay at one spot (distance and location from the basket) for a 10 shots, and then move to a new location and repeat. Variability of practice leads to better long-term retention. Practice is still important, but variability and feedback to practice is critical.

Consider this article a lesson in breakthroughs. If you are working on your passion for ten years with deliberate practice. Finding what works and what doesn't, striving for excellence and being mediocre or just getting by, you could be about to break your ten years of silence and became awesome and one of the top leading brands, person or expert of that deliberate practice.
