Josh Waitzkin was one of the top chess and Thai Chi performers in the world. He became an expert on learning, on figuring out the best process for improving skills. He discusses “leaving numbers to numbers” where you stare at the hard numbers for whatever you’re doing until you intuit it so deeply that you no longer have to consciously think about the numbers. He discusses forcing his sparring opponents to precisely break down which move defeated Josh so that he could meticulously study it for both defense and offense. He discusses “making smaller circles” by playing more and more subtle psychological games, and how to train yourself to have specific routines trigger peakperformance mental states.

“[Thai Chi masters] read the body like a great chess player reads the board.”
