    Can I tell you something I hate? I hate that Malcolm Gladwell 10000 hours theoryFor anyone who's avoided it somehow the way it works is that Gladwell who we'll get to poses the theory that 10000 hours of concentrated limits pushing practice is what separates the successful from the amateur the pro from the broFirst of all no shit If I just picked a huge giant number and if you worked on something that long there's almost no way you're gonna be worse 10000 hours that's over a year of 247 practice If you were going 8 hours a day 5 days a week if you did this as a full time gig you'd practice just a hair under 5 years Hell go ahead and take the day off on holidays you're looking at 5 yearsYeah I would HOPE you'd be significantly better at something within that timeframeNow it's obviously a very flawed theory Do people tend to go towards things they're good at naturally and therefore they only end up practicing things they are already pretty good at? To ask that a different way would anyone be likely to stick with something they suck at for 10000 hours? And obviously most glaring there are other factors at work here Genetics What kind of shape you're in to begin with Whether you've perhaps engaged in parallel experiences that would inform your primary goal Let's face it there's no amount of practice that will make certain people good at certain stuff And there's also a lot of stuff most people have done 10000 hours and still suck at Drive around Santa Fe I'm sure most of the old folks down there have driven somewhere in the neighborhood of 10000 hours in a lifetime and they're terrible at itThe theory is also so untestable Who is going to pick up a basketball today clock that 10000 and then shove it in Malcolm Gladwell's face? Which is why it's the perfect theory to put in a book It's pretty tough to debate Which to me makes it a bad theory Okay it's a bad theory this 10000 hours thing But that's not really my problem with it My problem with it is that I think it serves as an excuse for people to not do shit Because basically it's going to take a decade before they're truly any good And even that is a gamble A big long term gambleNot having 10000 hours is a great excise to never do anything I'm never going to get in 10000 hours of swimming so why bother? I'll never be able to put in 10000 hours of plumbing so why even try?Which brings us to what I like about this bookArt Before Breakfast gives the two things you need to get started on something new It gives you concrete tasks to perform that take less than 10 minutes apiece and it gives you permission to suck Not just at first but maybe forever Not having time for art or artistic pursuits is an excuse I'm sorry but it is If you're not happy with your life if your work is unfulfilling and your relationships suck I'd give art a try Seriously Because like this book says it's not just about putting ink on paper When I ran a lot I had these experiences that were really good and really healthy that went far outside actually running I felt really in touch with the seasons which is a hippy stupid thing to say but if you spend an hour outside every day you really are in touch with what's happening outside When you go down the same roads at a speed way slower than driving you start to notice stuff like when the creek is really high or when a field is mowed This isn't important shit but there's something healthy to me about paying attention that wayThis book is like the anti Gladwell solution It's not about being great at drawing or watercolors or whatever It's about just getting started and doing itThe author makes this great point about art that never got made being similar to art that was made and then burned Art that was never made because someone chose not to make it that's art that will never benefit anyoneQuit burning all that art and get to work damn it
