GeekOut til You SpeakOut

July 14, 2009

Curious to know how many hours I’ve spent blogging. What will my writing style look like after I’ve spent 10,000 hours blogging? What’s the best way to keep up with type of metric.

If you are reading this blog and have zero idea of what I’m talking about, then you absolutely need to check out Malcolm Gladwell’s book called “Outliers”. It’s absolutely incredible! He writes about the 10,000 Hour Rule- meaning it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert in any field of study. I would imagine that successful blogging could also be measured by Gladwell’s rule.

The 10,000 hour rule is cool but honestly some of his other examples are even more thought provoking. His theory on plane crashes, mitigated speech and team work was very powerful. Gladwell is just such an amazing story teller. I can’t wait to read his other books!
