I’ve heard it takes 10,000 hours of practice to make you an expert. That’s a lot of time.
In fact it’s so much time that people often throw their hands up in the air and don’t even try.
But actually with some ninja tricks, you can do it in much less time, since after all I’m guessing you don’t have 5+ years to your career to the next level.
I’m sure you’d like much quicker results, right?
Becoming an expert does require time, dedication, and investing in yourself.
Consistency each day, each week, each month of practice in even as little as 10-15 minutes. Even 5 minutes a day is more than 80% of people spend investing in themselves.
I did a podcast last year about two men I call the “gods of the strings” Itzhak Perlman and Jimi Hendricks that you will find helpful. We can learn a lot from these two about becoming an expert.

Neither of these men became an expert over night, but both of them were committed to daily practice. They did the little things each day, and over the course of weeks, months, and years they became expert.
You see you can read all of the books you want, but until you start implementing and exercising the knowledge until it becomes a competency you won’t become an expert.
That’s why especially for leadership, you don’t need to read another book, you need to join a leadership program where the rubber hits the road and you consistently practice the concepts and learn the ninja tricks so you get quicker results.
You already understand the benefit of investing in yourself or you wouldn’t be reading this email.
