Personal Best: 166, 9 dart finish.

Interesting practice today. The value of the practice session was definitely consolidation rather than challenge. I was surprised to do a personal best today for the 9 dart challenge.

So I’m trying to get better at darts. I’m experimenting with all the concepts that guide me when coaching children in athletics. I’m trying to learn more about practice through my own experimentation, so that I can create better practice for the children I coach in athletics.

Guiding concepts:
– Randomised vs Blocked Practice.
– Implicit Learning.
– Mastery (Growth Mindset – Dweck) – Love Challenge, intrigued by mistakes and enjoy the effort.
– Lots of Practice (Doing)
– Deliberate Practice / Deliberate Play
– Feedback
– Performance before Competence
– Pleasantly Frustrating
– Challenge and Consolidate
– Clearly defined Goals

Did a personal best today: 87, 9-dart finish.
