by Ava Arsaga, Parent Cortical Mass

 

When somebody performs in an exceptional way, you might exclaim, "What talent!" But if you refer to the expertise as “talent,” you lose sight of the hard work it took that person to reach such a high level of achievement. You might mistakenly believe an innate ability caused their success. Knowing the 10,000-Hour Rule can free you from the myth of talent.

Deliberate practice may not have nearly as much influence in building expertise as we thought, according to research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. The new study, from psychological scientist Brooke Macnamara of Princeton University and colleagues, indicates that the amount of practice accumulated over time does not seem to play a huge role in accounting for individual differences in skill or performance.

How Technology Enhances Creativity | The 10,000-Hour Rule: What Parents Need to Know | Scoop.it

by Greg Satell, Innovation Excellence

 

Technology does not quell creativity, in fact, there’s a great deal of evidence that suggests that technology enhances creativity. Certainly, we are expected to be more creative in our working lives than a generation ago. The truth is that by expanding possibilities and automating part of the creative process, we can all be more creative and productive.

Parent Cortical Mass's insight:
