Ep. 162 - Anders Ericsson: 7 Secrets of Mastery


You have no idea. None of us did. Until now. Everything I've done for the past two years is unfolding before me. I interviewed Dr. K Anders Ericsson. You know his work. He discovered the 10,000 hour rule. The rule that says if you do 10,000 hours of "dedicated practice" you can master a field. But what we’ve been lead to believe is false. And it's finally being corrected. Today.  Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise uses thirty years of research to reveal what we never knew before, including:What you're truly capable of, how you can achieve it, and where to start. I started this podcast two years ago. And I just realized what it’s actually about.  Everyone I interviewed has one thing in common: peak performance. They excelled in their field. They’re the smarter person in the room. They mastered their craft. Go to jamesaltucher. com for 7 things I learned about how to become a PEAK performer
