Once in a while I try to learn a new skillset and lately it’s playing guitar. I just want to learn the basics so that I can teach others. But most selfishly I just want to learn to play so I can be romantic under the stars one night playing for my wife her favourite song.
The truth is I know I will never become a great guitar player. I am not willing to put more than 10K hours of practice. I am ok with being average in this case. It’s just a hobby. But when it comes to my ability as a peak performance coach, teacher, speaker I have already put more than 10K hours of practice and I will become great one day. I have no intention of being mediocre in my life’s work.
