10.000 kicks, times and hours

I fear not the man who has practiced 10.000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10.000 times.

 Bruce Lee.

I don’t know when Bruce Lee said this, but it rings true in so many ways. If one practice session takes an hour there’s a dead match with Malcolm Blackwell’s 10.000 hours as a tipping point prerequisite for superior performance. So, hang in there, focus and practice … or maybe just read the book?

By the way — the quote was brought to me by Luc Limère for the Alstom AMP cards; have grouped this with future quotes from the same collection under the AMP-tag.
