HBR: 10,000 HOURS

Alright. We've got some work to do and clearly commitment is a key.

This is the first installment (of hopefully many) concepts, ideas, thought provokers, etc.

I realize we're all busy and have lots on our plates.

Take a minute to check these out. Even if you just read the first and last paragraphs.

This isn't any gospel, there's no right or wrong, but


Below is an excerpt from a Harvard Business Review article titled A Fast Track to 10,000 Hours of Practice

Have you completed your 10,000 hours of deliberate practice?

The idea that 10,000 hours (about 1 year and 51 days total) of practice is what you need to gain expertise in performance-based fields was initially popularized in Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller Outliers. The research results he focused on emphasized the benefits of practice for fine-motor activities like playing the piano. But more recent studies show the upside of the 10,000-hour benchmark for collaborative knowledge work — the type of expertise required to create, or lead, or grow a company.

Apply it to bikes, apply it to work, cooking, communicating, whatever you are working on.

All of it is a process, just stick with it.
