What Experts Do Better Than Others

What Experts Do Better Than Others

From Dave Epstein’s The Sports Gene …

“As experts gain experience, they are quicker to separate wheat from the chaff.  Experts swiftly move their attention away form irrelevant info and cut to the data that is most important in determining their next move.  While novices dwell on individual pieces or a player, experts focus more attention on the spaces between pieces and players that are relative.  Most importantly in sports, perceiving order allows elite athletes to extract critical information from the arrangement of players or from the subtle changes in an opponent’s body movements in order to make unconscious decisions about what will happen next.”
