Depends how you practice.
Deep practice dosnt guarantee result.
You also need to know what to attend to that makes you better.
I love to practice for example, I can stand hours and days and hit balls.
However my practice is short, with high intensity and focus due to I make sure I improve in that practice measureable.
The Talent code book dont explain why of 10 people in the tennis class only 1 or 2 or maybe none makes it to the tennis tours....
or why one class has 3 that succeed, and Daniel coyle have no answer to that.
So your point is right, some do practice and have no result even as they follow the deep practice routine.
Unless you have measureable tangible result becoming slightly better when you do so.
As I work with a tour pro its evident when I assist in a change to do it so it works, last time he wanted slightly more consistency so I adjusted his back swing he had for 20 or so years, 1 hour instruction, 2 range sessions and its working as the old one.
I also altered his set up after that and again slightly better. If your making a change, it should work directly and also would be measureable.
The Dan Plan dont do that enough.
That is why he is platueing out.
