On the importance of feedback

From Aran at Grad School, quoting “The Role of Deliberate Practice in the Acquisition of Expert Performance”):

In the absence of adequate feedback, efficient learning is impossible and improvement only minimal even for highly motivated subjects. Hence mere repetition of an activity will not automatically lead to improvement in, especially, accuracy of performance.

Ergo, my posts will remain long, rambling and unnecessarily self-referential unless you give me feedback. Comments are a good channel to give feedback. Please help me to think and write better!
