It appears that Malcolm Gladwell has done it again. Bill Taylor in his article in Harvard Business Publishing, The Secret of Success in a Failing Economy, reports on Gladwell’s new book Outliers: The Story of Success, and how success is more about sheer persistance, than raw talent. Apparently, he even puts a “10,000-hour rule” on practicing, saying that ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness.
