Success Secrets : 10 Years to Mastery

In my recent review of Steve Martin's auto-biographical tour-de-force Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life, I referred to the emerging research indicating that "deliberate practice" over about 10 years appears to be the prerequisite for mastery in many fields. In that vein, I recently noticed a post from uber-blogger Steve Rubel on the same subject entitled, Become an Expert with the Power of Deliberate Practice. Well worth reading, and an additional confirmation of this theory.
