Lessons from practice under a master teacher 🔗

What is a master? 🔗
Masters have a good mental model of their domain. They have learned to automatically notice the important details, such as soccer players mapping out the positions of players on a field when watching a game without explicitly thinking about it.
These are the facts, images, and patterns that allow a master to quickly assess and respond to a situation. They allow him to quickly process large amounts of information without the limitations of short term memory.
