They say to master a skill, you need ten thousand hours at it. And if you didn’t sleep and just constantly worked at your chosen skill, you’d have it mastered in a little under four hundred and seventeen days.
The human brain is funny. Touch a hot stove once, you’re a master at not touching hot stoves for the rest of your life. Be a master pianist? If you practice unfailingly every day for three hours, it would take you over nine years.
I mastered something today with eight days to spare. I started four hundred and nine days ago.
