Deliberate Practice: A Life Skill

Deliberate practice is about making small, specific changes to improve a skill. It involves:

  • Paying close attention to what you’re doing
  • Knowing your current skill level and what’s holding you back
  • Setting clear goals
  • Breaking down the skill into smaller parts
  • Working on each part one by one to improve

In this video, Dhrupad talks about how he uses deliberate practice in kicking a football at a certain spot and angle.

Deliberate practice isn’t just for football; it’s a life skill for improving any area. These steps themselves are skills you can learn. It takes time and space, which is what open learning provides.
