“I practiced for 8 hours a day since I was 6. And spent hours on the weekends taking private classes from the best and playing for hours and hours. Summer vacations simply meant more practice time, practice until I was as perfect as I could be. And they called that brilliant. I call it discipline.”
To be considered proficient in any field you should spend 10,000 hours of good practice time on it, which is basically 20 hours per week for 10 years. This takes dedication and passion.
