The 10000-Hour Rule

Freshman (College 1st year) ・English ・Harvard ・2 Sources

The 10000-hour rule which states that any level of practice holds the key to the achievement of the highest degree of success in any particular has become one of the sacrosanct recited as a litany in workshops that deal with high overall performance and echoed on websites. The only issue is that I consider this point of view to be half true. If someone is a duffer in a particular game for instance golf and makes a similar mistake each time they try to make a putt or swing, by having 10000 hours of practice is much less likely to improve the performance in that sport. They will remain to be duffers.  An individual is less likely to get any benefits from a mechanical repetition but rather by adjusting the way they execute things to get closer to theirs set targets and goals.  The only secret of being successful is having a  deliberate practice, whereby an individual who has better skills (teacher, coach) takes you through training that is well designed over years or months, and you will give full potential in everything you are doing (Carter, 2014).

Learning how to improve a person’s skills demand that an individual has a top down focus on the particular thing they are doing.  Building new brain circuit and strengthening the older brain circuit, requires that people pay attention: when any form of practice occurs, and our mind is focused elsewhere, it is impossible for the brain to refurbish the exact circuitry of that particular routine.  Fantasizing overthrows practice; those individual who browse television while working are less likely to reach the highest ranks.  Paying full attention has the capability of creating a neutral network for the exact thing that we are practicing, strengthen the synaptic connection and boost the minds processing speed (Ericsson & Pool, 2016).

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am not used to such services and I usually write all the papers by myself. But this time I got in a very difficult situation and had to order my paper on this website. To my surprise it appeared to be quite good. Thank you, it is really nice service. Think I'll get back to you soon!

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
