Edinburgh Nights / Singapore Days + The Beginning






The Beginning

Some characteristics of the development of an expert have been found to include...

  • At a minimum usually 10 years of consistent practice, sometimes more for certain fields.

  • A characterization of this practice as "deliberate practice", which forces the practitioner to come up with new ways to encourage and enable themselves to reach new levels of performance.

  • An early phase of learning which is characterized by enjoyment, excitement, and participation without outcome-related goals.

  • The ability to rearrange or construct a higher dimension of creativity. Due to such familiarity or advanced knowledge experts can develop more abstract perspectives of their concepts and/or performances.

Kris Kristopherson talking about Johnny Cash:
"He was built to create ... and he did it by god all his life ...William Blake said it was your duty ... if you had the credentials for spiritual communion ... if you refuse and bury your talent in the earth ... though you should want natural bread ... sorrow and desperation will pursue you throughout life and after death shame and confusion are faced to eternity ... Well, John will never have shame and confusion of face: because he was creative right up to the end"
