10 years, 3 hours a day (#100)

Most people “don’t have time” to follow their dreams, and do what they love, because they’re busy with a full time job, or have many other obligations that they hav to deal with. But, if it takes 10,000 hours of practice to master a skill, then you actually only need to practice 3 hours a day for 10 years and you will now be a master at this hobby/passion of yours. You can always find an extra 3 hours a day if you remove all the bullshit you waste time on, and perhaps reduce your sleep time. If 10 years seems too long, consider the alternative of never.
