I always thought that I lived a simple life. Now understand that nothing is simple. Just another illusion of my own self.
It was easy to get to the Para-Olympics. It was easy to be born with a cerebral palsy (CP). It was easy to move to Thailand.
Simply is not simple. X number of hours of training in life. Hours of training my muscles to near maximum physical collapse. Endure any ill-treating people of ignorance CP injury I do not think that I have. In Thailand, I am ignorant because I’m a Westerner in the first place. Secondly, cerebral palsy, for which they do not know what CP is saying that Parkinson instead …
People who know me say I’m weird. Because I am an artist and artists are often strange…. (In Swedish, this sounds very funny English, not as much fun, but a little).
I have turned off all those hours of withstanding ease training. 1000 hours of training, ordinary people do not have the capacity to implement. Hours of painting, hours listening to people, hours to train my body physically.
Hours to develop my talent for something I have a passion for. Hour after hour. Making this blog takes me 4-5 hours per week. I write slowly. But I want to leave an impression and makes the blog because I think it’s fun.
Tell me I had 1000 people in coaching. If I had them one hour, it is 1,000 hours. On average, I have a client at least 5 hours and usually much more. It gets 5000 hours which is equivalent to about 208 days. If you can work 24 hours per day, which is not possible.
So if we expect more 20 hours a week, 960 hours per year that you can work without a vacation. 5000 hours divided by 960 hours per year is 5.2 years. I stick their necks out and say that I can coaching.
With the above extent, a is not hours of reading books, education and consult with others as a mentor. I have certainly spent more than 10,000 hours of coaching under my coaching career, which begin about 30 years ago.
Seven years it will take to be approximately a sprinter. Since it takes about two years to reach the world’s elite. You spend an average of 20 hours a week. So nine years times 960 hours per year is 8640 hours to become an accomplished sprinter.
This implicates not you reach an Olympic final in the 100 meters, which I did. Into account is not the years I train just for fun before I focus on athletics. Seven years it takes from you bet on a branch.
My art career is just starting. Say that I painted about 200 paintings (certainly more maybe 300) and each painting takes on average 3 hours effective time (that means I removed the coffee breaks, clean the brushes, ponder motive and more).
This will be only 600 hours. Tell me I’m to have put in hours of training, ship paintings to exhibitions, practicing different techniques and more for about 300 hours. There will be about 900 hours. So I have about 4000 hours left before I’m good.
Whatever you want to become good at it takes about 5000 hours. So that’s what I mean when I say that ordinary people do not carry out 5,000 hours to reach his passion in life.
You do not even need to be good only passion. When 5,000 hours passed, it is good, I promise …
It’s easy to coach people with more than 10,000 hours of training behind you. It is easy to reach the Olympic / Para Olympics with 8640 hours of training behind you.
It is not easy to be an artist with just 900 hours behind you …
The latest music video. I have just started my musical film performance. Maybe, just have put in 200 hours or less. So it will probably be good if I’m working on, about 4800 hours. Feel good, see you next weekend …
