… if you spent 10,000 hours on your passion, you would reach a level of mastery in your field.

10k hours completes an apprenticeship, that’s all. Now we’re on the start line. Another 10 brings us to expertise. Mastery is another 10k hours away at least.

Then all of a sudden we wake up one day and we realise how good we are at this thing we’ve been doing for so long.

It takes longer than we think. So get comfortable 😉
