Outliers: The Story of Sucess, by Malcolm Gladwell

“It’s not how much money we make that ultimately makes us happy between nine and five. It’s whether or not our work fulfills us. Being a teacher is meaningful.”
― Malcolm Gladwell, Outliers: The Story of Success

So if you are interested in learning some odd facts, this is the book for you! I liked this book because it has a rule that it doesn’t matter what economic back ground you were born in, you can become at master at anything as long as you put in the “ten thousand hours”. The “ten thousand hours” refers to practice, if you practice anything for that long you can become a teacher and star in that Art,Music,Writing the world is your oyster. Practice DOES make perfect.

I don’t wanna give any of the juicy stats and information away, so I will just leave with a highly recommend.

I give this 4/5 stars for brain fuel

  1. This is a great read and while the 10,000 hour rule does hold true no matter your economic status, the more powerful takeaway for me was how much economic status at birth and luck do play in a person’s success, sadly. There are likely thousands upon thousands of people who have their 10,000 hours at something, but will never be significantly recognized for their achievement(s), like that one man in the book – Chris.

    1. Yes! That is a sad but very true fact.
      How crazy was the hockey statistics?
      I wish someone would do that sort of statistics in Australia. It would be very interesting to know what our success rate is and based on what. 🙂
