I learned from Kobe Bryant (a.k.a. "Black Mamba") the legendary basketball player.
- Showed up at 5 a.m. and left practice at 7 p.m. ... in high school (start early)
- Watched his game replays multiple times (to improve)
- He practiced with different players (learning new moves)
Kobe spent time analyzing the mistakes in his game and improved one by one.
To sum up: He was a practitioner of Kaizen (Continuous improvement. Change for the better).
