10,000 Hours of Ping Pong?
I know you guys have probably heard of the 10,000 hour rule, right?
Where if you want to become an expert at something, then you need to spend 10,000 hours doing it.
Well, believe it or not I’ve spent 10,000 playing ping pong. Yes, that’s right. It was every single day in the summer, sometimes like six to eight hours per day (no joke). I would play table tennis nonstop, and I did it. I put in the time. I became an expert.
By the way, if you think you can beat me at table tennis then comment here below on this and challenge me, and we’ll see if we can set up a game.
Anyways, the fact is I’ve spent 10,000 hours studying this game, and not only spent 10,000 hours playing ping pong but deliberately practicing how to become the best that I could possibly become.
I actually went to this Junior Olympic tryouts one time which was extremely fun.
I know there’s maybe one rare person that could beat me at table tennis, so if you think that’s you, then again, comment below here and we’ll set up a dual match.
But the point I’m trying to make is that if you want to get really, really, good at something, where you’re like totally top of the class, expert status, then probably the only guaranteed way that you’re going to get there is by actually putting in the time, putting in the 10,000 hours to actually getting there.
