The Master

By: Steve Fite

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.
