How to Excel at Anything

Six steps to achieving excellence from the Harvard Business Review – not how to use the dastardly spreadsheet programme from Microsoft! More detail on each after the click.

  1. Pursue what you love.
  2. Do the hardest work first.
  3. Practice intensely, without interruption for short periods of no longer than 90 minutes and then take a break.
  4. Seek expert feedback, in intermittent doses.
  5. Take regular renewal breaks.
  6. Ritualize practice.
