Malcolm Gladwell’s new book, Outliers: The Story of Success, will be hitting the bookshelves very soon. It focuses on occupational success and the work we do — what happens when we go to work.
Gladwell’s states that it takes 10,000 hours to be a world-class expert in virtually anything. The time spent is also fused with a strong integration of practical intelligence.
Have you been ready, willing, and able to engage with your work for 10,000 hours to become an expert?
Here are 3 of Gladwell’s key elements of success:
- Working harder than your peers.
- Seeing things that others can’t see.
- Finding or creating a good fit between your cultural legacy and what you choose to explore.
