In those times when we want to acquire a new skill or face a formidable challenge we hope to overcome what we need most are patience focus and discipline traits that seem elusive or difficult to maintain In this enticing and practical book Thomas Sterner demonstrates how to learn skills for any aspect of life from golfing to business to parenting by learning to love the process Early life is all about trial and error practice If we had given up in the face of failure repetition and difficulty we would never have learned to walk or tie our shoes So why as adults do we often give up on a goal when at first we dont succeed In his study of how we learn prompted by his pursuit of disciplines such as music and golf Sterner has found that we have forgotten the principles of practice the process of picking a goal and applying steady effort to reach it The methods Sterner teaches show that practice done properly isnt drudgery on the way to mastery but a fulfilling process in and of itself one that builds discipline and clarity
