4TheGoodLife blog is on a quest to find & share true and actual ways we can make better use of our of most precious resources… TIME- as we strive to live the good life. I am investigating and reporting what makes up a good life and how you can start living it today! This is my mission and I hope you will join me!
The Good Life Lab Experiments grow from that mission. Below are list of things you can do today, right now, in each of the 7 core areas of your life, to you bring more:
- and much, much more!
This page will hold short Good Life Lab Experiments, related to the core area ‘TIME’, that you can incorporate into your life. Try them out. Some will work for you and others will not. This is about lifestyle design. Creating a life YOU fall in love with… on purpose, by being intentional with your time, effort and experiences.
Good Life Lab Experiments: Do you have 10,000 hours?
Malcolm Gladwell explains in his research that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to gain mastery over an activity. So I say… pick something and give it 10,000 hours.
That may seem like an unattainable task, especially with all your current obligations and expectations… but I disagree.
I say spend your time wisely and make something, just make one thing a priority and over a lifetime you will be able to say with confidence that you have gained mastery over something… something you can and will be an expert at!
How long is 10,000 hours anyway? 10,000 hours is only 417 days. A little over a year! If you live for another 20 years, that’s only 5% of your time over the next 20 years…. that’s equivalent to 500 hours or 20 full days. But if you practiced something for 3 hours a week, it would only take 167 weeks, roughly 3 years out of the 20 years to actually gain mastery over something you love!
That’s not to much to ask. 3 hours a week. What could you master now?
