Okay, okay, after reading ALL the comments on Chris Guillebeau’s “HOW TO WRITE A LIFE LIST.” I will attempt to relight the fire I referred to in my previous post. Here is the first thing on This Failed Optimist’s new Life List. First I had to admit that I wanted it and then I had to write it down.
- Write a book.
Now, I don’t know how to write a book but I found this quote today that should help a bit…
Practice what you don’t know
“You need a particular kind of practice— deliberate practice —to develop expertise. When most people practice, they focus on things they already know how to do. Deliberate practice is different. It entails considerable, specific, and sustained efforts to do something you can’t do well—or even at all. Research across domains shows that it is only by working at what you can’t do that you turn into the expert you want to become.”
