    I can't stand when people try to quantify things in this manner. He defines "expert" as what, really? Then to put a hard and fast number on what it takes to get "there".

    some are experts right out of the box though, like the 4 year old that plays classical piano or myself who could make mud cookies at 2.

    Practice...play....get better....enjoy yourself. Let someone else worry about what an "expert" is.
    I've read the book in question, highly recommended...and I can admit that it sounds a bit silly when taken out of context, but within the context of the chapter in question it was very interesting...he wasnt saying that if you practice 9000 hours you will not be an expert, but that last 1000 puts you over the top, he was merely noting how much hard graft goes into the work of many people we thought were naturally gifted - and not that they WERENT gifted, but just as the old saying goes: inspiration is 90% persparation. Persperation. er? Sweat...

    Read the book, it's well worth it!

    OK, then. If you become an expert, then stop putting in your 3 hours a day, do you become an ex-expert?
