I’ve heard more than a few times that it takes 10,000 hours of focused work/study in becoming good at something. Let’s face it, we all want to excel and be recognized, with dreams of being the best in our chosen field. It’s possible, according to recent research on the subject. Here is the formula in shorthand:
- Do what you love.
- Do it everyday with purpose, focus and determination.
- Find a mentor to provide accurate and honest feedback.
There you go, a short and concise set of steps. If broken down into days and months, the process fills itself in as you move toward proficiency and excellence. Either way, those 10,000 hours are coming. There is no stopping them. Why not use them in the precise way you choose, starting now?
