Four Practice Principles: Deliberate, Intelligent, Distributed, Over-the-Top

1. Deliberate Practice: practice like you mean it! Push yourself to do it better than the last time around

2. Intelligent Practice: study how each individual part of your talent can be improved and make an actionable plan to improve each part

3. Distibuted Practice: borrow and copy pieces of excellence from fields of talent other than yours and recombine into your own performance

4. Over-the-Top Practice: practice 4 hours each workday of every week for 10 years and you will cross over the 10,000 hours
