A TED Talk is 18 minutes long

TED curator Chris Anderson explains:
The 18-minute length works much like the way Twitter forces people to be disciplined in what they write. By forcing speakers who are used to going on for 45 minutes to bring it down to 18, you get them to really think about what they want to say. What is the key point they want to communicate? It has a clarifying effect. It brings discipline.”

10000 hour rule was made to become master in any skill. not to learn any skill. You just need 20 hours man. The 4 steps to literally invest those 20 hours in the skill:

  1. Deconstruct the skill: make it to smaller parts; you do not need to learn 100 or more chords to play a guitar; the important ones will be cool too.
  2. Learn enough to self-correct: Do not be like "I will read these 20 books and then go programming." Read that much which makes you self-learn and teach.
  3. Remove the practice barriers: Remove the filthy distractions. 
  4. Practice at least 20 hours.

(Watch the video, it is melodious. ;) )
