What is practice?
- By itself, not inherently enjoyable (requires effort; no immediate reward)
(Ericsson, Krampe, & Tesch-Romer, 1993; Lehmann, Sloboda, & Woody, 2002)
- A skill that can be taught
(Lehmann & Davidson, 2002)
- Improvement of skill is expected
- Solitary activity
- Lack of a coach as usually found in sports
