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.
