Cognitive scientists have identified two variables - practice style and

practice time - as key determinants of mastery in complex skills that

range from athletics t musical performance to computer programming.

According to K. Anders Ericsson, widely regarded as the foremost

theoretical and experimental researcher in this growing field, deliberate

practice goes far beyond hard work. "Deliberate practice is a very 

special form of activity that differs from mere experience and mindless

drill...Unlike playful engagement with peers, deliberate practice is not

inherently enjoyable. It does not involve a mere execution or repetition

of already attained skills but repeated attempts to reach beyond one's current

level whih is associated with frequent failtures."
