10,000 Hours To Expert?

In his book “Outliers” Malcolm Gladwell states his well known 10,000 hour notion where he claims that the key to success is a matter of practice. His belief is that the key to becoming an expert on any topic is logging 5 years or 10,000 hours of practice (estimate is 40 hrs/week for 5 years). This is supported by the research of Swedish professor K. Anders Ericsson noted the Harvard Business Review (check out http://hbr.org/2007/07/the-making-of-an-expert) which states "Consistently and overwhelmingly, evidence shows that experts are always made, not born."

I recently heard a song by rapper Macklemore and Ryan Lewis called Ten Thousand Hours, that seems to agree with this theory as he states that despite his lack of academic intelligence (illustrated by his score of 980 on the SAT’s) that he was able to change the path of his professional and personal outcomes with hard work.

The critics argument (most of them) is that the 10,000 hour rule is over-simplified. There are human genetic differences that are not taken into account. Most critics of the notion give examples of athletes who may or may not have logged 10,000 hours before achieving a high level of success on the field of play.
