I've heard that to become an international expert in any field you just need to read one hour per day for the next seven years.
I have been pondering this thought for the last six months or so trying to decide what topic I would choose. It sounds like a great plan - and easy enough to implement. I can definitely devote an hour a day to reading up on something interesting. The problem is, I know before I even come remotely close to narrowing down my focus, that it won't last. I can imagine a life of studying just one subject. I am curious, nosy, competitive, impatient, and my eyes are bigger than my stomach. I could name right now ten completely different subjects that I would like to become an expert in. Do the math - that's seventy years of focus. I know going down that road is not going to happen - I just don't have the patience for it.
What's the next logical step? Bring to life my efforts to learn more and do more. I am excited to share my experiences with the world and hopefully in turn learn more than I ever could by reading for just one hour a day.
