Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise

Who should read 

 A person who wants to reach at the highest peak of success in his work.

 How should read

 Go through the Mind Map, understand the concepts and give yourself sufficient time to plan your things according to the given concepts. Start with a small step, recognise your comfort zone, take one small step to get out of your comfort zone and apply deliberate practice concepts. Just do it now.


 To learn alphabets and basics, we need naive practice, i.e. repeating same things again and again. To reach up to a level where people can recognise us for our work, we need a purposeful practice where we have specific defined goals,and we work hard for those goals. This takes sufficient time and efforts- we listen our experts and coaches, we take their feedbacks and improve ourself. Many times we come out of our comfort zone, although it is uncomfortable. Hardest thing start when we do these things on regular basis i.e.- always dare to go out of comfort zone, continuously working on the feedback, trying different ways and developing our own styles, make a lot of mistakes and failures and learn from them. This is the most  uncomfortable practice and only a few people remain involved for a long time. This is a deliberate practice in which you should involve regularly to reach at the peak of success. Purpose of this practice is to create clear mental pictures in our mind of everything related to our task which train us for faster, accurate and quicker response. The deliberate practice is useful to reach on the top of the world in a known field and for which an expert coach is already available.

Take away

The graph of success is not a linear and going upward always. It has several plateaus and dips. The person who continues to practice succeeds. The secret of Extraordinary success and becoming world’s topmost achiever is involving yourself in deliberate practice regularly for a long time.

The Mantra of this book is – do more, fail more, learn more and keep going.
