Poll: 10,000 hours of practice

You might have heard Malcom Gladwell’s “10,000-hour rule” about the amount of practice it takes to master a skill, which sounds like a lot. This is discussed recently in an enlightening Dilbert strip.

Your editor admits he hasn’t been dedicated enough to master the guitar in this way. How about you?

Have you gotten your 10,000 hours of practice in on your chosen instrument?

  • Yeah, I passed that milestone years ago! Have you heard my last record? (32%, 7 Votes)
  • How the hell do I know? All I know is that I shred. (18%, 4 Votes)
  • I don’t practice on my own much, ‘cause it’s boring. I practice with the band instead. (14%, 3 Votes)
