Being good at something

“Being very good at anything involves being somewhat addicted.” – Ken Rogoff

Remember the 10,000-hour rule, in Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers?

If one don’t like it (eg: playing the piano; chess; swimming; programming; anything!) how can one keep doing it for 10,000 hour – or equivalent of 20 hour per week for 10 years, or 40 hour per week for 5 years?

20 hour per week means average of 3,5 hours per day.

40 hour per week means average 7 hours per day.

That’s probably why we’re so good at sleeping!
