'you are what you do' and 'practice makes perfect'

This follows on from the post I had up on motor learning a couple of days ago.

ASCLEPIUS has just posted this today which is really worth reading

I have just finished reading Daniel Coyle's 'The Talent Code'. It adds some biology to the idea that 'you are what you do' and 'practice makes perfect'. It is no revelation that our brains are plastic and can adapt throughout life - but Coyle digs a little deeper.

I encourage you to read more

I read this book a few months ago and it has some great insights into why "practice makes perfect" and dispells the myth of just having talent.
