PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE
In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell writes about the 10,000 hour rule, which basically states that in order to become a successful professional it takes 10,000 hours of practice. He uses examples, like how The Beatles played in Hamburg non-stop for two years honing their skill before they even recorded their first track.
So the best advice anyone can give to any young person, no matter what their pursuit:
PUT IN THE WORK!
I'm approaching the 10,000 hours.
How about YOU?
