St. Andrews, Canada

8x10, oil on canvas board

I just finished reading Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, also author of Blink and The Tipping Point. It deals with the complex story of success--not what you think according to Gladwell. What I found the most interesting as an artist is the 10,000 hour rule. He cites several studies that point to practice with the intention of improving as the best avenue for mastering a skill. The magic number tends to be about 10,000 hours. What do you think?
