Billion Dollar Campaign
Billion Dollar Campaign - Most of us who have read Malcolm Gladwell's book, "Outliers" filed away this little factoid-- it takes ten thousand hours of deliberate action to be successful. Specifically, he wrote "an extraordinarily consistent answer within an incredible variety of fields... you should have practiced, to get apprenticed, for 10,000 hours before getting good."

I reached the ten,000 number many years ago and have a fairly well cultivated ability to assess talent in many fields.
