Ten thousand hours is equivalent to roughly three hours a day, or 20 hours a week, of practice over 10 years… No one has yet found a case in which true world-class expertise was accomplished in less time. It seems that it takes the brain this long to assimilate all that it needs to know to achieve true mastery."This "statistic" has been rattling around inside my head for a few weeks. I have been asking, "What would I be willing to devote 10,000 hours toward in order to master it?"
But I have also been thinking...
What would my understanding of the Bible be like if I put 10,000 hours into it?
What would my prayer life look like if I were to put 10,000 hours into it?
What would my relationship with God look like if I put 10,000 hours into it?
At 1 hour per day it takes almost 28 years to reach 10,000 hours...
What do you think?
Here are a couple of articles that got me thinking...here and here. They aren't religious in nature, but they brought up the 10,000 hours idea.
