Typing - Joshua Foer

This quote was added by nzhussain
The 'OK Plateau' is that place we all get to where we just stop getting better at something. Take typing, for example. You might type and type and type all day long, but once you reach a certain level, you just don't get appreciably faster. That's because it's become automatic. You've moved it to the back of your mind's filing cabinet.

Actually, while learning any skill you will reach a succession of plateaus. Each new plateau requires a change in the way that you are learning the skill. Or requires a heavy shift in the way that you're thinking about the activity.
