10000 Hour Rule : Own your Field

What is the 10,000 Hour Rule?
In order for someone to master any complex skill, they must put in 10,000 hours of focused practice. This equates to about 10 years of their life.
10,000 hours to develop skill, certainty, discipline, professionalism, awareness, with deliberate practice.
Achieving a Break-Through is about time and effort. But, how much time we put in is much less important than how we get there. We’ve often been asked, what’s more important quality or quantity? In achieving personal development goals, quality is more important that quantity: the quality of people you surround yourself with, the quality of resources you have, and what you do with those resources or the support system. Reaching your goal is about accountability, maximizing intensity, and taking action.

In the sample, Rift valley had 24 per cent of the respondents, Central 17 and Nairobi 13. Central is perceived as Uhuru’s strong hold while Rift Valley is perceived as under the grip of his running mate.
