The Open Secret
Do you remember the line from the nursery rhyme…? “Good Better Best, May I never rest, until my good is better and my better best”
I believe this doesn’t just stop at kindergarten but can be translated into every aspect of our lives. If we keep working to improve daily we can have a lot done and great things achieved. In Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hour theory comes to play here… that every successful person in any chosen field has invested a minimum of 10,000 hours of practice to sharpen and perfect his/her skill. You may or may not believe this theory, but the point here is this; if you keep practicing and improving daily you get better at what you do. Don’t stop, keep practicing.
“The thing that distinguishes one performer from another is how hard he or she works. That’s it. And what’s more, the people at the very top don’t work just harder or even much harder than everyone else. They work much, much harder.” – Malcolm Gladwell
