“Outliers” : 10,000 hours of deliberate practice makes a superstar. Or, at the very least, 10,000 hours of practice is key to mastery and these hours are more important than “innate talent” in creating success.
10,000 Hour Rule Examples: The Beatles played nearly 10,000 hours together in Germany before emerging as “The Beatles” that took the world by storm, Tiger Woods put in his 10,000 hours on the golf course before most of us can even drive a car with a permit, Bill Gates was geeking out alone on a PC putting in his 10,000 hours as a kid.
Do the math: 20 hours a week for 10 years or 40 hours a week for 5 years or 80 hours a week for two and a half years = expert status.
The reality: Most People Quit Long Before 10,000 Hours
Would you be willing to put in 10,000 hours to master something and become an expert?
