Are you story of net 30000 hours?
December 19, 2014

Are you working for your goals every day, at least net 8 hours?
Today’s youth want to be successful with 3 steps formula. Short cut to success, less pain and easy money.
I am surprise, when i come to know this formula. Is it possible? Even, if it is happened, it is happened for some years. It could not be lifelong success. It could be success on surface level. It cannot be spiritual success.
Haunting the 10,000-hour rule argument are the specters of two influential, but discredited, scientists.
The first, Francis Galton, the 19th-century father of eugenics, argued that heredity essentially explained all talent and expertise. Galton’s racist ideas inspired the Nazi’s horrific notions of racial purity.
The second, John Watson, the early-20th-century father of behaviorism, argued,
“Give me a dozen healthy infants, well-formed, and my own specified world to bring them up in and I’ll guarantee to take any one at random and train him to become any type of specialist I might select—doctor, lawyer, artist, merchant-chief and, yes, even beggar-man and thief, regardless of his talents, penchants, tendencies, abilities, vocations, and race of his ancestors.”
To his credit, Watson acknowledged he was “going beyond the facts” in this contention. But his 1920s advice on child-rearing led some to treat their children with emotional detachment, which was terrible advice for parents.
Today’s 10,000-hour rule debate is often pitched as a fight over which of these extremes, nature or nurture, is more important when it comes to acquiring expertise. And the participants in the debate often paint their opponents as taking an extreme view of how expertise is acquired.
Glad well, for example, said at the MIT debate that Ericsson is guilty of “expanding and stretching” the 10,000-hour rule toward being an absolute, far from his own view of it as more of a principle for people pre-screened for aptitude for a skill
What you consider as successes have also significant importance. Are you looking forward for what kind of success? Do you believe only in monetary success?
I strongly believe that, one have to invest at least net 10000 hours for first level of success. After that, process is continuing. Gradually, you start living accordingly .One day you become legend or role model for lots of people.
You become life long trend setter.
