“Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.” ~Malcolm Gladwell
Today’s Mind Bullet revolves around a famous success tenet that, when you look deeper, simply reflects the magic of The Habit Factor: The 10,000-hour rule.
The 10,000-hour rule was made famous in Malcolm Gladwell’s book Outliers, which discusses the outlier-type variables that influence success, for example when you were born.
10,000 hours spent practicing a skill. This rings a bell. What is created when you do something over and over again until you become unconsciously proficient? That’s right! A habit!
In Outliers, while Gladwell points out the seemingly random occurrences that contribute to success, he discusses one consistent success factor that holds true across all instances: the 10,000 rule. That is, practicing a specific task that can be accomplished with 20 hours of work a week for 10 years, leading to otherworldly proficiency.
Tune in for more on Gladwell’s 10,000-hour rule, the one great constant among extreme success stories, and how the Habit Factor compounds supportive behaviors to carry us automatically toward our goals.
