    How to master anything

    Interesting thoughts here even if all you look at are the bullet points.

    Very interesting. I think there is some really good advice in the article.

    Thanks Mark. A few years ago (I think) there was an mastery solution offered by who-knows-whom that basically said 15 mintues of focussed study per day for a year on a specific topic can result in a person fully mastering that topic and becoming a world-renowned expert.

    Brian, that doesn't jive with the other advice suggesting 10000 hours is the magic number to be called expert.

    I'm not ascetic, but I'd agree with the idea that expert involves hard work, sacrifice, and discomfort.

    I'm amazed how low the bar is sometimes. Read somewhere that if you read 3 books on any given subject that that can generally get you into the top 10% on that subject, as compared to the world in general. The next 9% is a bit tougher

    10. Rely on trial and error more than anything.
    This one has been my main learning approach through life. Seems to work OK for me to date.

    The problem with any rule of thumb is that thumbs seem to come in many different sizes.
