The 10,000 hour rule: If you do anything for 10,000 hours, you will become an expert in it.

So this is what I’m going to do. Practise guitar for 10,000 hours.

I actually calculated it to see how long 10,000 hours was. Turns out a year has 8760 hours:

  • minus 3285 hours for work and travel
  • minus 2920 hours for sleeping
  • minus 1095 hours for eating

That leaves me only 1460 hours in a year to practise. And say that I dedicate all 1460 hours in a year to practise guitar, it would then take me 7 yrs to become an expert.

OK, breathe. I’m going to take my guitar to work from now on.
