Hack the 10,000 hour rule

  • Plus: Find mentors, real (maybe someone from your work) or virtual (from books). Learn from someone with more experience than you.
  • Minus: Explain what you are learning while you are learning it. Teach someone with less experience than you.

This seems like a small number. But 1% a day, compounded, is 3800% per year.

Do it

You can’t get better at chess just by reading about it. You have to play. Then you have to play in high stress situations (like a tournament).
