Great short interview of Malcolm Gladwell of “Tipping Point” success.
Malcolm Gladwell, best selling author of The Tipping Point and Blink, has a new book “Outliers”. Apart from being an excellent book on success, it may give insight on Gladwell himself, since he would appear to an outlier too. In this interview, Gladwell states that in order to achieve true mastery of something, you need to spend approximately 10,000 hours at it.
Conclusion…next time you have your annual performance review with your boss, tell him/her you’ll need at least 10 years to be great at your job.
