The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence

READ The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence REVIEW The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence 108 Josh Waitzkin ✓ 8 REVIEW Elled him to the top twiceWith a narrative that combines heart stopping martial arts wars and tense chess face offs with life lessons that speak to all of us The Art of Learning takes readers through Waitzkin's uniue journey to excellence He explains in clear 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 Waitzkin explains how to embrace defeat and make mistakes work for you Does your opponent make. I picked up this book because it was recommended by Tim Ferriss who described Josh as the metalearner s metalearner A man who had risen to the peak of his field in the world in TWO highly competitive 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 to do 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 destination 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 did with the vast majority of his time for than a decade and then Tai Chi is what he did with his time Most of us have jobs kids key relationships to nurture etc that together preclude spending many hours a day on any one thingIn general I m much much interested in Tim Ferriss s minimum effective dose 8020 fast path to success style than to Waitzkin s obsessive singleminded one thing for years at a time depth Just a personal style as I d rather do 20 things pretty well than 1 thing world class It s fun Mon Calendrier, Agenda, Organisateur 2019-2020: La magie de la botanique -

READ The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence REVIEW The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence 108 Josh Waitzkin ✓ 8 REVIEW You angry Waitzkin describes 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 dealing 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.

READ The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence REVIEW The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence 108 Josh Waitzkin ✓ 8 REVIEW Josh Waitzkin knows what it means to be at the top of his game A public figure since winning his first National Chess Championship at the age of nine Waitzkin was catapulted into a media whirlwind as a teenager when his father's book Searching for Bobby Fischer was made into a major motion picture After dominating the scholastic chess world for ten years Waitzkin expanded his horizons taking on the martial art Tai Chi Chuan and ultimately earning the title of World Champion How was he able to reach the pinnacle of two disciplines that on the surface seem so different I've come to realize that what I am best at is not Tai Chi and it is not chess he says What I am best at is the art of learningIn his riveting new book The Art of Learning Waitzkin tells his remarkable story of personal achievement and shares the principles of learning and performance that have prop. Clearly as a chess player and a martial artist Josh is an accomplished and well regarded expert As a human being however he s a bit of a dickHe 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 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 never done 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 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 to do with focus and training Something that comes easy if you re insanely competitive to an autistic level like the author And if you aren t it s hard to motivate yourself to do the things he suggests Like most books of this nature if you have the ability to be as single minded as you need to be you probably don t need to read the book and if you don t have it the book won t really helpA lot of the book is memoir than insight and pretty dull But then I found the memoir parts of Stephen King s On Writing pretty dull too although the bits on writing were greatSo I d say this book is vaguely interesting and you might pick up an idea or two but that s about itAnother example of his spectacularly selective self awareness In the chess section he describes how he was an attacking player but as he got older teachers tried to teach him the Karpov way defensive etc but it turned him off the game Learning is about going with your natural flow he tells us Later when training in Tai Chi he discovers opponents who are stronger and faster what to do The Karpov Way Never occurs to him he s going against what he said earlier Whatever works seems to be the lesson Win at all costs If you can fool your opponent who cares how you do itThe thing is he s clearly a bright focused young man but natural abilities aren t as easily transferred as this book might suggest He claims to have a natural gift for learning which I think is true but sadly not for teaching And he s so full of himself it s astonishing If there s a chapter where he doesn t mention there was a film made about him then I must have missed it Now he s taken up Brazilian jiu jitsu and I can only hope someone gives him the sound thrashing he so richly deserves
