According to Malcolm Gladwell, it takes roughly 10,000 hours of focused practice to become a world-class expert. His findings show that this holds true regardless of whether your area of expertise is chess, business, dancing or athletics.
So how long is 10,000 hours?
3 hours of practice every day for 10 straight years.
Sound overwhelming? It is.
But if you break it down into achievable, immediate goals and start working at it you can get there.
