The 10,000-hour rule was made famous by author Malcolm Gladwell in his best-selling book Outliers (2008). In it, Gladwell suggests that the key to becoming world-class at something is to spend 10,000 hours engaging in the activity. Unfortunately, it isn’t true.
The 10,000 hour rule gives the impression that any time spent engaging in a goal activity would lead to further improvement. However, Anders Ericsson, the Swedish psychologist responsible for the research on which the 10,000-hour rule was based suggests that to improve your skill at any goal activity, the method of practice is what matters, not the time spent.
This episode covers those 3 methods of practice, proven effective in the growth and development of any new skill you are striving to achieve.
