  1. I agree) Approximately corresponds to the total duration of higher education at the university. 8 hours a day multiplied by 5 days a week, 4 weeks a month, and 12 months a year = 1,920 hours, multiplied by 5 years (former specialty, or the average period between a modern bachelor's degree and a master's degree) – 9,600 hours. If we consider people with higher education in any field to be Experts, it is quite possible. Well, if you decide to walk the path yourself-please spend the same amount of time ))))

  2. I think that from the yes part, as it was calculated above, this is a large amount of time and if this time is really spent on work, then 10,000 will be enough, and if, like some classmates at the university, sitting on the phone , then 50,000 will not be enough. If you swing an axe / sword/racket for 10,000 hours and each swing is not done on “fuck off”, then in 10k hours you will become a real pro and master. All these calculations take into account that the person is interested, and not just killing time .

  3. It depends on what you mean by expertise, and why you need this expertise.

    For example, I do not know how much time you need to spend to become an expert on any topic on this site, but according to my estimates, this is much less than 10,000 hours )

    If you intend to sell your expertise to someone, you should focus your efforts not on increasing your expertise, but on demagoguery skills, sales technology, and the ability to fit into any gap. To illustrate this, turn on any TV channel and rate the “experts” participating in the show debates.

    In all other cases, it should be understood that there are no “experts at all” – there are experts for something. For example, if you intend to write another biography of A. S. Pushkin, you will have to become a Pushkinist. If you comment on hockey on a regional TV channel, you will have a thorough understanding of the sport. If you conduct seminars on sex, then… In general, there are no average and generally mandatory 10,000 hours – there are specific costs of time and effort for specific tasks, and these costs are individual.

  4. Time is not important in itself: expertise can only show the result of your work and the speed with which you rolled out this result.

    If the work is routine – ´┐ŻOK, you can take the amount of time as a sign of expertise. But in most cases, people do more complex work, not to mention the creative aspect.

    It took me 6 years to learn how to make good websites. At the same time, there are a lot of people who do them better than I do, but they spent less time because they went to a cool school. Time and expertise are usually not comparable things.

  5. No, I don't agree.
    Everyone is different, and everyone needs a specific amount of time to learn information and acquire skills, which can not be even approximately the same for seven billion people.

  6. This is a completely speculative number. Different areas have different competition; different people have different natural data. Someone will be lucky in the form of, for example, a competent mentor, but someone will not. Some people use quick learning techniques, while others choose less effective ways. But there is no doubt that in most cases it takes a lot of practice to achieve significant success.

  7. Agree. Even if you take prof.sporstmenov: they received ms or CMC not by magic, but by training hard, giving their all to this sport. I can also say the same about musicians: they study at a music school, practice playing various songs, and study sheet music. So, here's what I'm getting at. Only by training hard, learning something, you can become a real pro in any field.
