Adebimpe V Alo Review: What does it mean to be successful? This is one of the many questions that concern most people today.
Daniel Coyle comes up with an intriguing answer in The Talent Code, a highly readable account of the neuroscience of skill and talent.
It all has to do with myelin, the substance that insulates the synaptic connections between the neurons. Every human skill is the result of the formation of such synaptic chains of nerve fibers.
When brain circuits are fired the right way, myelin is generated, insulating those connections, making the signal flowing through them clearer, stronger, faster.
According to Coyle, the degree of this insulation is what is responsible for talent — the more time and energy you put into the right practice, the more myelin is deposited on those neural circuits associated with that practice, the more talent you achieve.
It is as if the brain builds more broadband for those circuits that are activated in the right way.
The right way is that of deep practice, one of the three key ingredients that are responsible for the creation of the neural architecture of talent.
The other two identified by Coyle are ignition and master coaching. What is deep practice? It is the struggle against that which is just beyond the grasp of one's ability.
Struggling with something difficult makes you smarter because it signals to the brain to start building more broadband in repose. Struggle is not optional — it is neurologically required. In order for a skill circuit to fire optimally, it must first fire suboptimally; in other words, it must first fail.
You must make mistakes and pay attention to them if you are to become skilled. And you must keep up the practice, firing that skill circuit until enough myelin is build up around it.
This insight is revolutionary because it suggests that talent can be manufactured — all you need is a space in which you can practice making errors, struggling until you can overcome them.
It is also counterintuitive because we imagine that the person with talent somehow does a thing right the first time. But deep practice takes place in the narrow gap between what you already know and what you need to do. This deep practice does not involve threshing. It is in that gap that talent is born.
How exactly does one do this? Coyle enumerates further aspects of deep practice: But practice alone is not enough. You need to love what you're doing, you need the desire to achieve a goal — you need fire. Without such deep need to practice every day, you will never develop talent because you will never endure the long years of necessary deep practice.
Coyle calls this desire ignition.STEP 2: Reading The Critical Review The Talent Code Excerpts From Chaper 1 Sweet Spot Harvard Case Study: To have a complete understanding of the case, one should focus on case reading.
