Table Tennis Lessons London

Is it possible to master table tennis in 12 monthsIt’s been over a month since I last wrote a blog post! That’s pretty shocking. The Christmas and New Year period is always a busy one but this time it has been even more hectic due to it coinciding with the climax of the Expert in a Year challenge. I have been at a table tennis tournament, either coaching Sam or playing myself, on every single weekend since Saturday 6th December (which was the Nottingham GP for those that are interested).

Only now do I feel like the dust has settled enough to begin writing about the challenge in detail and further exploring the intricacies of expertise and what makes a great table tennis player. And that is what I am going to be writing about today. This blog post will cover some of my thought regarding the concept of the challenge as a whole, and touch on ideas such as the 10, 000 hour rule, rapid learning, talent, and anything else that pops into my mind.

But before I start…

Now it’s time for me to do the same.

The #1 Problem with the Expert in a Year challenge

Looking back, it’s clear to me that above all there was one big problem with the Expert in a Year challenge… my lack of a clear hypothesis.

I had loads of ideas flying around in my head and I’d read loads of books about mastery, expertise, deliberate practice, talent and rapid learning. They all kind of had a similar message but were approaching the issue in very different ways. Instead of picking one theory and testing it out exclusively I kind of just jumbled them all together and we ended up with the Expert in a Year challenge.
