Books for Better Living is getting into the holiday spirit with Season of Surprises (aka S.O.S.), a month-long celebration of healthy living. We’re bringing you daily book giveaways, exclusive excerpts and inspiring tips that will help you end 2012 with a healthy bang.
Today, we have a great video tip from the pages of The Little Book of Talent: 52 Tips for Improving Your Skills by Daniel Coyle. Coyle’s book is a manual for building a faster brain and a better you. Whether you’re age 10 or 100, whether you’re on the sports field or the stage or in the corner office, this is an essential guide for anyone who ever asked, “How do I get better?”
In the video below, Coyle tells why the clock is the wrong thing to focus on when you’re practicing to improve a skill. Take off your watch and focus on quality repetitions instead, he says.
