The Little Book of Talent by Daniel Coyle

Dealing with Mistakes

  • When you make a mistake, you need to review it carefully and never take it personally. Use mistakes as opportunities to form new circuits in your brain and visualize that process. You can also visualize the circuits in your brain getting faster, which is what happens when you practice using the tips from the previous page.
  • You can also shrink the space you work in like successful coaches. Writers can work in restrictive meter or limit efforts to 140 character tweets. Slowing down to get something perfect is better than going fast and sloppy. When you get it right, write it down and practice again right away. Also consider taking short naps to recharge.
