Malcolm Gladwell in his book 'Outlier' claimed that it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at anything. He went so far to say that if you spend 20 hours per week for 10 years on a single craft, you could end up in the top of your field/industry.
Whilst he emphasized the 'quantity' of learning, he made no mention of the 'quality' of learning required to become the best in a chosen field.
If you spend your time learning your craft or practicing through 'passive' learning, it may well take you 10 years plus to be one of the best.
However, studies have proven that 'participatory' learning can massively accelerate your rise to be the best.
So from switching your learning from 'passive' to 'participatory', you can become one of the best in your field in a much shorter time.
To your success.
