The Art of Learning: An Inner Journey to Optimal Performance - Paperback

2008, ISBN: 0743277465

[SR: 6532], Paperback, [EAN: 9780743277464], Free Press, Free Press, Book, [PU: Free Press], 2008-05-27, Free Press, In his riveting new book, The Art of Learning, Waitzkin tells his remarkable story of personal achievement and shares the principles of learning and performance that have propelled him to the top—twice.Josh Waitzkin knows what it means to be at the top of his game. A public figure since winning his first National Chess Championship at the age of nine, Waitzkin was catapulted into a media whirlwind as a teenager when his father’s book Searching for Bobby Fischer was made into a major motion picture. After dominating the scholastic chess world for ten years, Waitzkin expanded his horizons, taking on the martial art Tai Chi Chuan and ultimately earning the title of World Champion. How was he able to reach the pinnacle of two disciplines that on the surface seem so different? “I’ve come to realize that what I am best at is not Tai Chi, and it is not chess,” he says. “What I am best at is the art of learning.” With a narrative that combines heart-stopping martial arts wars and tense chess face-offs with life lessons that speak to all of us, The Art of Learning takes readers through Waitzkin’s unique journey to excellence. He explains in clear detail how a well-thought-out, principled approach to learning is what separates success from failure. Waitzkin believes that achievement, even at the championship level, is a function of a lifestyle that fuels a creative, resilient growth process. Rather than focusing on climactic wins, Waitzkin reveals the inner workings of his everyday method, from systematically triggering intuitive breakthroughs, to honing techniques into states of remarkable potency, to mastering the art of performance psychology. Through his own example, Waitzkin explains how to embrace defeat and make mistakes work for you. Does your opponent make you angry? Waitzkin describes how to channel emotions into creative fuel. As he explains it, obstacles are not obstacles but challenges to overcome, to spur the growth process by turning weaknesses into strengths. He illustrates the exact routines that he has used in all of his competitions, whether mental or physical, so that you too can achieve your peak performance zone in any competitive or professional circumstance. In stories ranging from his early years taking on chess hustlers as a seven year old in New York City’s Washington Square Park, to dealing with the pressures of having a film made about his life, to International Chess Championships in India, Hungary, and Brazil, to gripping battles against powerhouse fighters in Taiwan in the Push Hands World Championships, The Art of Learning encapsulates an extraordinary competitor’s l, 4744, Motivational, 4736, Self-Help, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4745, Personal Transformation, 4736, Self-Help, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 3048891, Memoirs, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4406, Chess, 4402, Puzzles & Games, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 282936, Tai Chi & Qi Gong, 4645, Exercise & Fitness, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 12621, New Age & Spirituality, 297524, Angels & Spirit Guides, 12624, Astrology, 297500, Celtic, 12631, Chakras, 12634, Channeling, 12636, Divination, 282910, Dreams, 12474, Druidism, 12476, Gaia, 15755611, Goddesses, 4713, Meditation, 12671, Mental & Spiritual Healing, 12673, Mysticism, 12676, New Thought, 12678, Reference, 12681, Reincarnation, 11350965011, Sacred Sexuality, 12683, Self-Help, 12480, Shamanism, 12723, Spiritualism, 12685, Theosophy, 12687, Urantia, 11309334011, Wicca, Witchcraft & Paganism, 22, Religion & Spirituality, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 9681295011, Martial Arts, 9681293011, Boxing, Wrestling & MMA, 2446, Biographies, 26, Sports & Outdoors, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Josh Waitzkin:
The Art of Learning - Paperback

2008, ISBN: 9780743277464

ID: 9780743277464

In THE ART OF LEARNING,Waitzkin offers an inside look at two of the world's most intense subcultures while also sharing the principles at the core of his success. One must focus on long-term goals, Waitzkin argues, instead of the immediate thrill of victory or crush of defeat, enduring the difficult periods that result in growth to reach higher levels of achievement. As the details of his life are unfolding, Waitzkin explains how these principles apply to his own story, creating a narrative that is as inspiring and instructional as it is gripping.
