I read this article yesterday morning:
Malcom Gladwell Outliers Extract: Is there such a thing as pure genius?
The article talks about how among the super-geniuses we recognize today, and even among those who aren’t famous but are clearly far ahead of the pack, one of the things that their blowout success comes down to is an inordinate amount of “practice time,” on the order of 10k hours by the time they’re my age – whether it’s music, programming, or hockey.
I have a lot of catching up to do. I want to dedicate myself to something right now, but it’s just as school is ramping back up, and it will be ramped up until Dec. 12.
