We've talked about this topic before... It's from Malcolm Gladwell's book, "Outliers"...

See Ankesh Kothari's review of the book here...


Anyhow, I stumbled across this interesting article. One guy, who has never played golf before in his life, is trying to become a golf professional - by deliberately putting in 10,000 hours of practice.

He estimates it will take him 6 years...

He's keeping a log book, with statistics, and everything...

It's a fascinating story. It will be even more fascinating to see if he succeeds!

You can see the article here...

Can a complete novice become a golf pro with 10,000 hours of practice?

Anyhow, an important point, I think, is that practice does help with anything... Including entrepreneurship!

The more you do it, the better you get!

Best wishes,
