How To Keep Yourself On Track

After reading the post on deliberate practice, one reader pointed us to this process from The Talent Code.

1. Pick a target
2. Reach for it
3. Evaluate the gap between the target and the reach
4. Return to step one

While this isn't deliberate practice — where you deconstruct something into its constituent parts and methodically attack each of them before moving on to the next one — it does seem like a good way to keep you moving in the right direction rather than getting stuck in a rut.
