They say that to be good at something you must spend 3 hours a day everyday for ten years practicing until you mastered the concept by heart.
Why is it so hard? I suppose to make it less harder and more enjoyable there should be a reward for completing each task. People wouldn’t normally perform a hard task endlessly unless there is a reward at the end of the road right?
Some ridiculous examples :
Iron fist water slapping : Why do we do this? It makes no sense but the main goal is to build discipline to make our hands toughen over time. What’s the reward? Gaining that new skill set and building destructive palms.
Reading a book : Why do we do this? Nobody knows only god knows!
Reviewing for a quiz: Can be accomplished by taking a practice quiz and looking up the answers to the problems you got wrong. Repetition works best until your brain is fried. Then reward yourself with some ice cream and get back to your other trainings.
So what is the reward for completing these complicating arduous task? Your reward is ice cream. Just remember, there is ice cream at the end of the road, enough for you to spend 10,000 hours on performing the same old task over and over again.
In conclusion I leave you with this image. Why did i get a 60% on this quiz even though I spent so much time studying? Nobody knows, only god knows! I’m assuming I don’t get any ice cream then :(.
In an effort to accomplish new goals and challenges in life I have decided to pick up a gaming hobby to be more productive in life.
I used to play lots of computer games when i was little but as I grew older and transitioned to college I decided to quit playing games to bring my grades up. Apparently quiting what i love doing best actually made me more depressed and I ended up getting Cs and Ds instead of As.
So now I will return to the gamer life style from scratch. It’s been a long time since I’ve played any games so I am a bit rusty. I am planning on playing all the ps3 games first and then getting a ps4 in the future.
I am a fan of adventure/action/quest games but I recently discovered new skilling games such as The Voice, UFC personal trainer, Just Dance. These new games will teach me some skills in real life instead of completing random quests for virtual gold. I am planning on dedicating 8 hours a week to play ps3 and documenting my adventures.
Updates TBA, thanks for reading!
And yes, the ps3 is not that expensive compared to other hobbies such as golf, martial arts, traveling, eating and drinking. PS3 games are affordable and anyone can pick up this hobby if they have time.
