Ten Thousand Hours


#1


Yoyoexpert actually shared this, so idk if there’s any point in me posting.
As you guys may or may not have noticed, I haven’t been active for like 1-2 months ._.
I yoyo on-off. I was currently off and THIS VIDEO re-sparked my yoyo blaze.
It’s absolutely amazing. I suggest you guys watch if you haven’t already.

Great video, not sure how I feel about the Backspin logo though.

I clicked on this because this reminded me of the book I read called “Outliers” and how it talked about you must have 10k hours to become good/master anything.
Nice video :slight_smile:

That vid did make me want to pick up a yoyo :smiley:


#5

See?

… and the corollary (as discussed and arrived at by the blogosphere) milestones of one hundred, and one thousand hours for Competence and Expertise, respectively.

If I only spend 9999 hours am I not a true master?

Wow that video was amazing


#11

Great video really inspiring and exactly why I love yoyoing.


#12

I wonder how many yoyoers have actually put in ten thousand hours. Very few, I’d imagine. If you played for two hours per day, it would take thirteen years to accrue that many hours.

You can’t prove anything!
