In studying skill building we have come across something that we think you will find as interesting as we did...

 The three myths of skill building  

  1. Skill is Genetic....she is a NATURAL....he was just borne with a natural ability few posses...... While being tall can be an advantage in playing basketball or first base in baseball or playing tennis the same advantage is not there as a gymnast or short stop or a pole vaulter! No one is pre-disposed to be great at anything. The only place that skill comes before work is in the dictionary!!!!
  2. If I just do it more I’ll get better. If you always do what you have always done you will always get what you have always gotten. While doing something repeatedly will lead you to doing it better sooner rather than later you will find yourself in that inevitable plateau of mediocrity with no way out!
  3. If I just try harder I’ll get better! Trying harder will never improve your skill because trying harder makes you become more careful and being careful is trying to not fail.
