Bill Gates on Expertise: 10,000 Hours and a Lifetime of Fanaticism About the Book Outliers

Bill talks about the work of Malcom Gladwell and the Outliers
Bill Gates responds to Malcolm Gladwell's theory that it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to master a skill. Apart from acknowledging luck, timing and an open mind, Gates suggests that a successful person survives many cycles of attrition to make it to 10,000 hours of experience. "You do have to be lucky enough, but also fanatical enough to keep going," explains Gates.
