From the world’s reigning expert on expertise comes a powerful new approach to mastering almost any skill. Have you ever wanted to learn a language or pick up an instrument, only to become too daunted by the task at hand? Expert performance guru Anders Ericsson has made a career studying chess champions, violin virtuosos, star athletes, and memory mavens. Peak condenses three decades of original research to introduce an incredibly powerful approach to learning that is fundamentally different from the way people traditionally think about acquiring a skill. Ericsson’s findings have been lauded and debated, but never properly explained. So the idea of expertise still intimidates us — we believe we need innate talent to excel, or think excelling seems prohibitively difficult. Peak belies both of these notions, proving that almost all of us have the seeds of excellence within us — it’s just a question of nurturing them by reducing expertise to a discrete series of attainable practices. Peak offers invaluable, often counterintuitive, advice on setting goals, getting feedback, identifying patterns, and motivating yourself. Whether you want to stand out at work, or help your kid achieve academic goals, Ericsson’s revolutionary methods will show you how to master nearly anything.

This book was the first handbook where the world's foremost 'experts on expertise' reviewed our scientific knowledge on expertise and expert performance and how experts may differ from non-experts in terms of their development, training, reasoning, knowledge, social support, and innate talent. Methods are described for the study of experts' knowledge and their performance of representative tasks from their domain of expertise. The development of expertise is also studied by retrospective interviews and the daily lives of experts are studied with diaries. In 15 major domains of expertise, the leading researchers summarize our knowledge on the structure and acquisition of expert skill and knowledge and discuss future prospects. General issues that cut across most domains are reviewed in chapters on various aspects of expertise such as general and practical intelligence, differences in brain activity, self-regulated learning, deliberate practice, aging, knowledge management, and creativity.

Berpikir seperti orang aneh adalah berpikir dengan sudut pandang yang lain, atau bisa juga dibilang berpikir layaknya anak-anak yang bebas merdeka, memikirkan kesenangan sendiri, dan tak mengenal rasa takut.Kita kerap kali memikirkan hal-hal yang besar saja dalam menyelesaikan masalah, sementara ada hal kecil yang bisa kita lakukan yang sering kali terlewatkan. Memang hal kecil yang kita lakukan itu tidaklah menyelesaikan keseluruhan masalah, tetapi setidaknya mengurangi keruwetan masalah tersebut. Buku ini menyenangkan sekali, penulis menceritakan kisah-kisah sepele tetapi sangat informatif dan menyenangkan dari berbagai topik, dari pemilihan sudut tendang saat pemain bola hendak melakukan tendangan penalti, bagaimana seseorang bisa makan sekian banyak hot dog dalam sepuluh menit, dokter dari Australia yang menemukan bahwa penyebab mag adalah bakteri, bagaimana cara seseorang mencari dana untuk membantu anak-anak yang berbibir sumbing di negara dunia ketiga, sampai bagaimana sebuah toko sepatu daring bisa menjadi perusahaan favorit padahal menggaji karyawannya dengan bayaran relatif kecil. Semua kisah itu begitu mengesankan sekaligus menginspirasi kita untuk berpikir dengan sudut pandang lain. Buku ini juga mengajarkan manfaat berhenti. Kita dibesarkan dengan pepatah, maju terus pantang mundur. Seakan-akan jika kita memilih mundur atau berhenti hina atau aib sekali. Padahal untuk hal-hal tertentu, bisa jadi memilih mundur atau berhenti adalah pilihan yang lebih baik dan lebih memungkinkan.

From the bestselling author of The Power of Habit comes a fascinating new book exploring the science of productivity, and why, in today's world, managing how you think--rather than what you think about--can transform your life. Productivity, recent studies suggest, isn't always about driving ourselves harder, working faster and pushing ourselves toward greater "efficiency." Rather, real productivity relies on managing how we think, identify goals, construct teams and make decisions. The most productive people, companies and organizations don't merely act differently--they envision the world and their choices in profoundly different ways. This book explores eight concepts that are critical to increasing productivity. It takes you into the cockpit of two passenger jets (one crashes) to understand the importance of constructing mental models--telling yourself stories about yourself in order to subconsciously focus on what really matters. It introduces us to basic training in the U.S. Marine Corps, where the internal locus of control is exploited to increase self-motivation. It chronicles the outbreak of Israel's Yom Kippur War to examine cognitive closure--a dangerous trap that stems from our natural desire to feel productive and check every last thing off our to-do lists, causing us to miss obvious risks and bigger opportunities. It uses a high-achieving public school in Cincinnati to illuminate the concept of disfluency, which holds that we learn faster and more deeply when we make the data harder to absorb. It shows how the principles of lean manufacturing--in which decision-making power is pushed to the lowest levels of the hierarchy--allowed the FBI to produce a software system that had eluded them for years. It explores how Disney made Frozen into a record success by encouraging tension among animation teams--a version of what biologists refer to as the Intermediate Disturbance Hypothesis, which posits that nature is most creative when crises occur. With the combination of relentless curiosity, deep reporting and rich storytelling that defined The Power of Habit, Charles Duhigg takes readers from neurology laboratories to Google's brainstorming sessions and illustrates how we can all increase productivity in our lives.
