Skill Mastery & Peak Performance through Deliberate Practice with Psychologist Anders Ericsson

Anders Ericsson, author of the book "Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise". He is among the world's leading authorities on how to new master skills. Anders conducted much of the research on expertise and peak performance that Malcolm Gladwell famously referenced to develop the 10,000 hour rule. Anders demonstrates that talent is overrated and peak achievement is dependent on a specific type of learning called "deliberate practice". We explore the science of learning and of skill mastery.

Donald Hoffman: The Case Against Reality (Consciousness, Evolution, Cognitive Science)

My guest today is cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman, author of the book "The Case Against Reality". Don has been making waves with a theory of reality that splinters all of our preconceived notions. What if everything we thought was real -- the physical world around us and the notion of time -- are not reality but a vast surface-level operating system designed to guide our behaviors for evolutionary survival. What if understanding true objective reality were in fact counter to evolutionary success.
