Transcript of 10,000-Hour Rule

10,000-Hour Rule Outliers Project
Of Sarah Jones
The Rule:
Because of my love for working with kids and helping them, it has lead me to pick a major where it allows me to work with them and help people overcome their challanges.
How it Started:
After REading the outliers...
After reading and thinking about the Outliers I have come to realize that, because of starting early with gymnastics, it allowed me to get a job with teaching it. My 10,000 hours has prepared me for life, teaching me how to break things down, able to teach and relate to kids of all ages and build on my patience level. It has opened doors for me I never thought possible like working at physical therapy offices, and meeting people that would influencial to me later in life.
How it relates to the Text:
When Gladwell asked the legendary Bobby Fischer and how he got to his elite level, he replied by simply put in the hours. "Well, it's roughly how long it takes to put in ten thousand hours of hard practice. Ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness." (41).

The 10,000-hour rule states that having 10,000 hours of practice in a certain field can lead to mastery.
Since the age I was three I was pulled into a special programs for Gymnastics.

Dedication and love for the sport is the only reason you would give your life to the sport and spend 20 hours a week in the gym.
Acording to the book people who were the people on top didn't have anything strikingly different about them. I didn't have this natural ability nor did I have this amazing potential that made me stand out. No, everyone has potential its just what you do with it that counts. I worked "much much harder" (Gladwell 39) than everyone else, and had everything working against me which made me more eager to prove them wrong.
Got a ways to go!
(Haven't reached it yet)
Thank you!
