This is why the 10,000-hour rule matters

10,000 hours to mastery

The 10,000-hour rule holds that you need to dedicate 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become world-class in any given field.

For example, I was recently watching a documentary on the great Aussie golfer Greg Norman, who didn’t even begin playing golf seriously until his mid-teens.

Because Norman intuitively understood the 10,000-hour rule he barely even bothered playing rounds of golf, instead cramming in thousands of hours to hitting practice balls on the range until he became a world-class striker of the golf ball.

The concept has been around for a few decades, but was eventually popularized by Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers.

Although the 10,000-hour rule has been criticised and may not be a cast-iron thesis, there’s no doubt in my mind my that instilling such a powerful ‘muscle memory’ can be a tremendously effective way to achieve mastery in your chosen field of endeavour.

Thus if you can dedicate 20 hours per week towards a specific task then you can truly master it in about 10 years.

I discussed these ideas a little further in the short video here
