In the course of the week, I read about the Kenyan marathon athletes and I was marveled at the handwork they put in. an average Kenyan athlete would have ran across the mountains and lanes in a 4 hours race every morning before the sun rise. If we are to visualize this, it means that a Kenyan athlete would have been out of the house by 3.30am for his daily run so as to get back to the house by 7.30am so as to prepare for his day’s job. This means he must be out of his bed by 3 am (Chai, I begin to wonder how many hours he has to sleep).
Do you know that an average Olympian spends 10,000 hours in training before he can be considered a true athlete?
Do you know that you must have spent an average of 10,000 hours on a particular skill or trade before you can be considered an expert?
The hours spent in training, learning, practising on any trade must accumulate to give you that expertise needed for you to forge ahead.
For you to attain these number of hours, you have to make sacrifice. You have to give up something of value and importance.[Tweet “For you to attain these number of hours, you have to make sacrifice”]
