Nature-Inspired Optimization Algorithms dNtense fundamental focus on minute but critical parts of process which can elevate one person s performance heads above another Watizkin makes plainespite a mild stink of self congratulatory biography that the thing that separates the best from the rest is generally speaking how serious one takes their pursuit and how engaged they are in improvement There s a conception out there that time and experience will trump most everything Simply enduring and spending large blocks of time specialized in a particular area will separate you from the pack and in some sense this is true Drawing on my own experience as a programmer I see this at play every Geographies of Learning: Theory and Practice, Activism and Performance day where juniorevelopers make core mistakes because the way the conceptualize problems suffers from a lack of experience they see the problem wrong from the outset because they ve not enough experience with problems in general to unify common structural elements and avoid those problems implicitly I have an edge there through experience However the order of BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban)

work io and the work people who are changing the programming world Unequal Profession do isramatic and those inexperience Ormus Modern Day Alchemy developers will catch up to me and surpass me in time It s unlikely either of us will catch up to or surpass those few top programmers because we re playing an entirelyifferent game One topic that never comes up is how Josh is able to The Archaeology of Mothering: An African-American Midwife's Tale devote himself so entirely to his particular goals without concern for money or facing theistractions and constraints of normal existence costs And it s an important thing to consider and an important thing to leave out Most of us have obligations that supersede our own focus many of us are obligated by the constraints of reality to put our focus in a particular place which may or may not enhance us whether we want to or not because the conseuences of not are felt in very concrete financial terms On the whole the book was insightful and challenging In interesting look into the motivations thought processes and experiences of a top level performer but i fear much of the book is abstract and impractical for those of us trying to earn our Lo pienso bien y lo digo mal daily bread while improving our selves if i took nothing else away from the book I took a subtle understanding of the mentalynamics involved in being a top level performer which i previously had little insight into Whether I can or want to realistically integrate much of that insight into my own life remains unclear The inertia of personality and habit are great and trying to motivate oneself on rewards that are hard to internalize but easy to imagine is slippery ground Josh had the benefit of beginning living his life in a micro to macro focus from very early on and The Illustrated Anthology of Sorcery, Magic, and Alchemy developed strong habits and techniues as a young chess champion thatefine his expectations of experience For those of us with a normal upbringing and normal expectation there is the added reuirement of throwing off years of habit experience and perhaps greatest expectation about what a Love, Immortal (Alchemy, day may contain to ualify as a gooday none of this was addressed and perhaps he idn t need to address it But these are real problems for people who want to take anything from what he s shared and neglecting them makes the book less vital and less engaged to it s own purpose A good look into what goes on in the minds of high performance athletes at the top of their game A bit spiritualized and fuzzy here and there but I kept thinking that we are lucky to have this rare athlete writing to us who combines the ualities of high athlete writing to us who combines the ualities of high intense self observation intellectualization of evelopment and finally communication of that entire learning experience to the normal people who might go through their entire lives never stretching themselves to those extreme limits where such iscoveries about learning and performance always seem to lie Very good themselves to those extreme limits where such iscoveries about learning and performance always seem to lie Very good about achieving world class mastery of a skill and the attendant phenomena like slowing Renaissance Emerge Series down timeit teeters on mysticism early on but if you get past that there are

a martial artist Josh is an accomplished and well regarded expert As a human being however he s a bit of aickHe goes to the Tai Chi Chuan Pushing hands World Championships in Taiwan their national sport and through hard work and an obsessive pursuit of excellence he becomes World Champion Integrating African American Literature in the Library and Classroom despite cheating and rule bending by the TaiwaneseOnly he never considers that this small nation has hardly anything else to call their own And with their huge Imperial neighbour suashing their every attempt at a cultural identity to have their beloved sport taken from them by a cocky privileged American who s neverone a real job not surprising they try to cheatIn fact I was in their corner shouting Sweep the leg He s so competitive and so self unaware that the irony of Celtic Plant Magic: A Workbook for Alchemical Sex Rituals doing a martial art about balance and tranuillity and using it to go to an incredibly unhinged extreme completely passes him bySo anyway the book is about learning and there are a couple of useful ideas here particularly in the third section But a lot of it is too with focus and training Something that comes easy if you re insanely competitive to an autistic level like the author And if comes easy if you re insanely competitive to an autistic level like the author And if aren

You angry Waitzkinescribes how to channel emotions into creative fuel As he explains it obstacles are not obstacles but challenges to overcome to spur the growth process by turning weaknesses into strengths He illustrates the exact routines that he has used in all of his competitions whether mental or physical so that you too can achieve your peak performance zone in any competitive or professional circumstanceIn stories ranging from his early years taking on chess hustlers as a seven year old in New York City's Washington Suare Park to ealing with the pressures of having a film made about his life to International Chess Championships in India Hungary and Brazil to gripping battles against powerhouse fighters in Taiwan in the Push Hands World Championships The Art of Learning encapsulates an extraordinary competitor's life lessons in a page turning narrative. The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of ExcellenceDiscipline everyone is great So you need to take advantage of your uniue specialtiesChapter 20 TaiwanCompetition etails Most people seem to love this book It was enjoyable but it felt like an autobiography than a book about the learning process You could essentially break his points Happy Alchemy: On the Pleasures of Music and the Theatre down into a uick reference card and have just as much scientificanalytic support for them I picked up this book because it was recommended by Tim Ferriss whoescribed Josh as the metalearner s metalearner A man who had risen to the peak of his field in the world in TWO highly competitive Plowshares Pork Barrels: The Political Economy of Agriculture (Independent Studies in Political Economy) disciplines chess and push hands martial Tai ChiI was expecting a book that spends a tremendous amount of time on philosophies about learning with examples from his life and othersThere are some thoughts about learning but they feel reflective than prescriptive since this book is really a memoirFrankly the only real think he says about learning is too so incrementally and to encourage students to think about it as an incremental process vs something that works because either you re good or bad at it He goes through great pains in his own life to separate ego from failure and treats failure as an essential part of the learning process vs a problem in itself He even goes so far as to push this as a life philosophy it s the journey not the estination that is life kind of thing which I completely agree withAll of this is part of the incremental theory of learning which is very simple but powerful and he spends very little of the book talking about itHowever he has a lot to say about what it means to become exportworld class at a thing and he says those things while basically giving his life story to age 29 I really enjoyed reading about his tournaments in both chess and Tai Chi but here s the problem about using those examples on how to learnBoth of his careers were illustrative of what happens if you take incremental learning to its absolute limit for example chess is what he id with the vast majority of his time for than a American Africans in Ghana Black Expatriates and the Civil Rights Era The John Hope Franklin Series in African American History and Culture decade and then Tai Chi is what heid with his time Most of us have jobs kids key relationships to nurture etc that together preclude spending many hours a BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 16 (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 16: Billionaires Secret Baby (Interracial African American Romance Urban Baby Romance Short Stories) day on any one thingIn general I m much much interested in Tim Ferriss s minimum effectiveose 8020 fast path to success style than to Waitzkin s obsessive singleminded one thing for years at a time My Hero Academia depth Just a personal style as I rather o 20 things pretty well than 1 thing world class It s fun If you re interested in gaining insight into the mind of a child chess prodigy turned adult martial arts champion this is a ecent book It s reasonably readable and has a lot of interesting stories about the author s chess and marital arts careers As an inspirational or how to book though it falls short Maybe it would be helpful if you re interested in single minded highly focused training in chess martial arts or another highly technical subtle and competitive pursuit But Diamond in the Dark despite his claims that his road map for learning can be applied to anyiscipline the author is unable to illustrate his ideas with examples from outside his own two fields He also oes a poor job of pulling the ideas together into specific actionable advice Instead he goes on at length about the philosophy and abstract principles and how they helped him achieve his chess and martial arts goals I kept reading hoping it would get better but it never id Overall a isappointment it s unaccountably rare to find someone who can perform at the highest levels of human capacity mentally or physically who can articulate much meaningfully about How They Do It You Can Survey they o it You can survey performers and many have and most won t have a concrete framework of thought behind that performance and most of it is intuitive the underlying principals are essentially a mystery Josh Waitzkin has performed at high levels both mentally through world class junior chess and physically through world class martial arts competition and has systemized his process and has a very clear understanding of how he s achieved the things he has He The African American Odyssey Volume 2 does a fairly effective job of communicating this to readers I say fairly effective because uite honestly some of the conceptual stuff is prettyifficult to translate How would you go about explaining a highly advanced concept built on the backs of hundreds of other highly advanced concepts to someone at the starting point in much the same way you can read a book one year and get one subset of points from it that resonate with you then read it again the next and get a secondary set espite the content remaining unchanged so it is with explaining intricate conceptual information You will come away understanding only the parts you are ready to understand espite the possibility there s a information You will come away understanding only the parts you are ready to understand Hardcore physical child abuse despite the possibility there s a of additional information there on that front i recommend you read the book and see what you come away with however what i think most people will universally come away with is a strong sense that people like Waitzkin are operating on an entirelyifferent plane of experience than most of us the level of attention to Handbook of Agricultural Entomology detailiscipline commitment and just plain work is far beyond that of the average person and it seems to catapult them to positions where the Dare for More difference between first place and third is roughly eual to that of third place and not entering a competition skill wise all the advanced conceptual stuff aside it s very hard to come away from this book feeling you ve been taking anything at all seriously in your entire life And uite possibly that insight may bring light to a uestion some of carry about why some people seem to be so much productive apparently naturally than the average It also challenges the belief some people are just better at something than others likely some people are focused and committed playing the game

Waitzkin's uniue journey to excellence He explains in clear A Gypsy Promise detail how a well thought out principled approach to learning is what separates success from failure Waitzkin believes that achievement even at the championship level is a function of a lifestyle that fuels a creative resilient growth process Rather than focusing on climactic wins Waitzkin reveals the inner workings of his everyday method from systematically triggering intuitive breakthroughs to honing techniues into states of remarkable potency to mastering the art of performance psychologyThrough his own example
