Daniel Coyle

Author, The Talent Code: Greatness Isn’t Born. It’s Grown.

Believes mistakes are the information you use to get better and that struggling in the right way makes you smarter.

Thinks the greatest catch in NFL history wasn’t an accident – it was a feat of preparation.

“To get good, it’s helpful to be willing, or even enthusiastic, about being bad.”

Believes you should stop practicing with “drills,” and start practicing with challenges.

Thinks the best way to measure progress is not in minutes or hours you put in, but in the number of quality repetitions you make.

“Although talent feels and looks predestined, in fact we have a good deal of control over what skills we develop, and we have more potential than we might ever presume to guess.”

Believes thinking in vivid images is an easy way to improve your skills.

Thinks temperament is a skill you can learn to control and not a fixed product of your character.
