A wise trainer once told me:
“It takes 10.000 hours to become an expert, on what subject would you like to spend 10.000 hours to become an expert?”
This is giving me a great deal of thought. What do I want to become an expert of? There are a lot of things I know a lot about, and even many more I’d like to know more about, but ten thousand hours seem like a lot. Maybe being an expert is not something you can become in these technology driven times, because more and more expert fields are being integrated. In order to be a good designer, you must be an expert at handling certain computer programs, in order to be a good mathematician, you need to be able to write at least some programs to confirm your theories. In order to be an expert in one field, you almost always need to be an expert in another field as well. Spending 10.000 hours on how to jailbreak or even figure every setting of your mobile phone seems a bit over the top – and in my opinion, a waste of time.
