10,000 hours to reach excellency – but how to do it?

You may have heard of this study:

Throughout the publication, Gladwell repeatedly mentions the “10,000-Hour Rule”, claiming that the key to success in any field is, to a large extent, a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of around 10,000 hours. (source)

A slight change to this?

  • You have to deliberately practice on getting better. So not just “OK, we «worked» for 10,000 hours”, but more like “We tried very hard to become better within 10,000 hours”.

So, not just work, but focus on becoming better.
