Developing expertise

[Cc'ed J.]
Thought you might enjoy this article. You're probably familiar with Ericsson--even I think I've heard his ten-year idea before. It does remind me of our discussions about IQ, and also of the "Power Law of Practice." To me mind, this is an important counterpoint to the IQ discussion because it's about what IQ isn't: destiny.

"The presentation or 'gift' of the Holy Ghost simply confers upon a man the right to receive at any time, when he is worthy of it and desires it, the power and light of truth of the Holy Ghost, although he may often be left to his own spirit and judgment." --Joseph F. Smith (manual, p. 69)

Be pretty if you are,
Be witty if you can,
But be cheerful if it kills you.
