This Practice Makes Perfect infographic goes over the widely held belief that someone must practice something for 10,000 hours before they can truly achieve greatness in a given activity.

Using the examples of The Beatles and Bill Gates, the infographic details reasons for which this theory may be true, and ways in which people can maximize their time to achieve greatness more efficiently. Giving a good argument for the avoidance of shortcuts, this piece of content advocates for good, old-fashioned practice and hard work in order to improve abilities.

One of the most important distinctions made by the graph is the difference between how mindless versus how deliberate one's practice is. The quality of practice done, the chart explain, factors largely into whether or not 10,000 hours will be sufficient for an individual.
