Forget The 10,000-Hour Rule; Edison, Bezos, & Zuckerberg Follow The 10,000-Experiment Rule
Deliberate experimentation is more important than deliberate practice in a rapidly changing world.
@A.V.Ramani This is just such an incredible read. I actually enjoyed reading it and I am just so glad that the line of thought runs parallel to what we are doing at CrazyEngineers for our upcoming products and services. Thanks a ton for sharing!
Bezos and Zuckerberg aren’t saying that experimentation is one of many strategies. They are saying it is THE strategy.I think these are the key takeaways -
- Following the 10,000-experiment rule means starting your day with not just a to-do list but a “to-test” list like Leonardo Da Vinci.
- To achieve 10,000 hours of deliberate practice requires three hours of deliberate practice per day for 10 years.
- Superstars produce just as many bad ideas as everyone else — they just produce more ideas overall. Having many more ideas means they have more failures but also more hits.
- If You Can Do Enough Experiments, Success Is Virtually Guaranteed
