During my undergraduate degree I spent a lot of time studying. The thing was, most of that time was spent studying poker.
Along with the game itself I dove into psychology, learning, emotional control and meditation. A lesson that stuck with me long after hanging up the poker hat was about the four stages of competence. The concept in poker was to move skills to unconscious competence a state where even the most emotionally frustrating situation (losing a ‘bad beat’, not dissimilar to an unreasonably difficult patient) would not affect the core skill. It was unconsciously working.
