Developing Performance


Developing Performance

I would like to share something I read today.....

In his 2008 book "Outliers", American writer Malcolm Gladwell examined his successful people achieved their success.  Whilst researching his book he discovered that in whatever field they became successful (e.g. music, sport, science or business) they all had one thing in common.  They all obeyed the 10,000 hours rule.  This rule states that top people have to practice/train/study for at least 10,000 hours in their chosen field to achieve success.

I love this, and by rough approximation, I know how many hours I have practiced/trained/studied - it's an interesting thought.

I have shared my F1 drivers helmet...wondering whether they train for this time!
