Talent = 10,000 Hours + Luck

Take Mal­colm Glad­well’s new book, Out­liers: The Sto­ry of Suc­cess. Boil it down. Make it fun­ny. And here you have our next video pro­duced by Kir­by Fer­gu­son. NB that there are a few words sprin­kled in that won’t be safe for work (unless you work in a spe­cial kind of place).

    Let’s hear it for Lady Luck! At least now I know why I am not an eccen­tric, reclu­sive gazil­lion­aire. No luck!

    I remain hap­py in my obscu­ri­ty and keep work­ing on those 10,000 hours.…

    I think I’ve hit about 7500 but even if I were to get lucky and strike it rich, I’d prob­a­bly work as much or more. The sat­is­fac­tion of com­plet­ing dif­fi­cult tasks and pro­duc­ing some­thing tan­gi­ble is much more valu­able than mon­ey.

    Of course, I’m not the type to veg out and count the time till I’ll get my next pay­check. IMHO, lazi­ness if high­ly over­rat­ed.
