Spartan beats Luxurious – Hard and Soft Skills

  • If you live in the lap of luxury you are less likely to put in the effort you need to succeed. Try to set up your practice space without a lot of distractions.
  • Hard skills have one path to an ideal result. These are skills that can be performed by a reliable robot. They are the fundamentals of any activity and need constant practice. Soft skills have many paths to a good result and you may never be able to know the best one. An emotional interpretation of a piece of music requires soft skills, while just playing the notes is a hard skill. Soft skills require varied reps with lots of honest and clear feedback, and errors. Hard skills proceed soft skills and must be mastered. It is key to understand what type of skill you are working on as you practice.
