Did you know that it takes about 10,000 to become successful at any given task? According to Malcolm Gladwell if you don’t quit before that period you’ll start feeling comfortable with the activity in hand. The cool part is that it applies to all areas of our lives, from personal to professional.
For example: For the last few years I’ve been trying to learn meditation and to be frank it’s not going as well as I wished. I get totally discouraged when I can’t switch off. So when I spotted this little fun fact a few weeks ago, I finally stopped being frustrated about my inability to switch off and started to concentrate on the technique itself. Makes sense?
Meg calculated that if we practice something for 3 hours each day for 9 years we will be good to go :) I love the concept of ‘do what you love and stick with it’ – brilliant!
Dears, how about you? Working on mastering something? What is it? What do you think about this concept?
P.S: Also, your anti-stress hero.
