Outliers: The Story of Success –
How do we build expertise in something? Why do some people become experts in their field and others never do?
Another favorite of mine from Malcolm Gladwell, here he looks at people who've become experts in a variety of fields - ice hockey, music, computer programming, and more. Gladwell found commonalities in those achieving high levels of success, regardless of field. A certain amount of innate talent is necessary, yes. But having that, the real key to success lies in practice - intentional, focused practice for an enormous amount of time. 10,000 hours is a number that comes up again and again in studies.
Think about out something you're really good at. How do you take your skills to the next level?
