How to be a genius.

  1. Specialize early on in childhood. You cannot be a genius in everything, you need to pick a skill to master. If you want to be a genius in chess, start playing and learning about chess as soon as possible (around age 4).
  2. You need to specialize in what you love. Work = play.
  3. Spend 5-6 hours a day studying a specific subject. Note: this does not make you one-dimensional. It teaches you how to learn and gives you confidence that you can learn anything. People who specialize early will be the most well-rounded.
  4. Don't make the initial challenges too difficult. A young child needs to build confidence with wins. Losses can lower their confidence.
  5. Polgar thinks that every child should learn chess and a foreign language.
