The 10,000 hour rule

Want to be really really good? Like Bob Dylan, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet etc.? You have to do what you are doing for 10,000 hours.

The full article is here , recently populized by Malcom Gladwell, in Outliers, the Story of Success.

I like Malcom Gladwell – he is iconoclastic, eccentric and intellectual. So it caught my eye. So how many is 10,000 hours in days and years?

Quite a bit – 4 hours per day, which is a fair bit to focus attention on exclusively, for 5 days a week, works out to 960 hours per year, which would be 10.41 years.
