What Is the 10000 Hour Rule?
The 10000 Hour Rule is just that. This is the idea that it takes approximately 10000 hours of deliberate practice to master a skill.
For instance, it would take 10 years of practicing 3 hours a day to become a master in your subject. It would take approximately 5 years of full-time employment to become proficient in your field. Simply work out how many hours you have already achieved and calculate how many more you need to clock up before you reach 10000.
So, if this is the case--what is the number of hours you need to be competent in your fiber field? Is it 10,000 hours, 1,000 hours or 100 hours? As someone who has been a weaver since 1979, I can personally say--I'm still learning! I AM NOT competent in my weaving! I don't think I ever will be. There is no way you can achieve the greatest number of hours and learn everything about weaving--how do colors mingle; weave structures abound; fiber combinations match, etc. So, I will continue to practice and build up more hours of learning!
