Path to Mastery:  10,000 hours

“In explaining the development of extraordinary talent, both Mr. Gladwell and Mr. Colvin zero in on seminal research by Florida State Professor Anders Ericsson and colleagues that suggests the threshold for world-class expertise in any discipline — music, sports, chess, science, business management — is about 10 years, or 10,000 hours, of persistent, focused training and experience.”

While it can be argued how long mastery of any skill would actually take (and indeed, what “mastery” actually IS), undoubtedly it takes a major investment of time and energy, focus and persistence.  So just for fun, let’s say mastery of anything DOES take 10,000 hours (or 10 years practicing 3 hours a day).  Doesn’t it make sense that the more fun I have doing what I’m doing, the more often I’ll do it, and the more often I do it, the better I’ll get at it and the better I get at it, the better results I’ll get and the better results I get…(you guessed it) the more fun I’ll have!

Path to Mastery:  10,000 hours of Fun


So, if you want to get better results at anything…ANYthing…simply have more fun.  Lesson over.  Go have fun.
