deliberate practice

"...a set of conditions where practice had been uniformly associated with improved performance.  Significant improvements in performance were realized when individuals were 1) given a task with a well-defined goal, 2) motivated to improve, 3) provided with feedback, and 4) provided with ample opportunities for repetition and gradual refinements of their performance."
