20 Hours vs. 10,000 Hours, Trauma, and Would You Start Over?


20 hours of focused, deliberate, practice is the amount of time needed to learn a new skill and go from incompetent to good.

10,000 hours of practice will make you an expert.

Extra Nugget: 10,000 hours of practice is equal to 5 years at a full-time job

 *tip: there is a way to practice efficiently


How to practice efficiently when learning something new:

  1. Deconstruct the skill

    • What do you want to accomplish with this new skill?

  2. Learn enough to self-correct

  3. Remove practice barriers

Nugget From The Body Keeps Score

Trauma isn't just psychological, it's physical. Our brains and bodies are wired to respond to danger, and during trauma, this survival mode gets stuck on "high alert." This leads to chronic changes in the nervous system, impacting everything from hormones and immune function to sleep patterns and emotional regulation.
