To be world class in your craft you need to keep yourself up to date in this world where everything is changing so rapidly.
Research suggests that from long that we need 10000 hours of practice to master something to excellent level, but who has the time to do it in this fast life of ours. So the idea of 10000 hours no longer serve us, Josh Kaufman writer of the First 20 hours claims that we can master any skill in first 20 hours working on that skill. But we could not work out straight on one thing for 20 hours, what came to save us is 5-Hour rule.
From the past year, I’ve explored the personal histories of many widely admired business leaders, including Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Mark Zuckerberg to understand how they practice mastery in their daily life.
In spite of their tight work schedule, they somehow find the time for their purposeful habits 1hour a day or 5 hours each week. This is what we called as the 5-Hour Rule of the billionaires.
Tips From Leaders To Follow The 5-Hour Rule
1. Read As Much As You Can
Bill Gates and Warren Buffet credits books as the most important part of their success. Even the Oprah Winfrey told, that “Books were my pass to personal freedom.” She has shared her reading habit with the world via her book club.
- Mark Cuban reads more than three hours every day.
- Billionaire entrepreneur David Rubenstein reads six books a week.
The second rule from the 5-Hour rule book is the meditation, all you have to do is find the time from your life to rethink about your success and mistakes. Meditation time would not have to be about hours but a small break of 15 to 20 minutes will do great for us. In one interview, she shared that she has more than 20 notebooks in which she logged the terrible things that happened to her and the gifts that have unfolded as a result
In one interview, billionaire entrepreneur Sara Blakely shared that she has more than 20 notebooks in which she logged the terrible things that happened to her and the gifts that have unfolded as a result of it. You need to elevate yourself by learning from your mistakes day by day.
3. Experiment With The New
Most of us afraid of failures to such an extent that we stop trying new things, we stuck in old habits on repetition for life. But that’s not the case with the Billionaires, they never afraid to take risks and try advance things in their lives.
They do things that add value to their life often they succeed sometimes they not, but they never stop from it.
4. Commitment To Your Goals
People who apply the five-hour rule in the world of work have an advantage.The idea of calculated practice is often confused with just working hard and not smart. Also, most professionals focus on efficiency, not on improvement. As a result, just five hours of deliberate learning a week can set you apart from the rest.
Elon Musk is known as the Ironman of the new world, what set him apart from others is his commitment towards his goals. He works 23 hours a day for his dreams ventures without taking a break in the 7 days of the week.
When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.
5. Learn From Life Always
No matter how many books you read, no matter how many tests you take, nothing from university or college can properly prepare you for life in the real world. It’s real life work that you need to be able to carry out, otherwise, you will be fired on your promotion day.
Stop being a couch guy and sit around, what we saw on Television yesterday in some cases may actually be what people do in real life. And no successful guy is sitting around Netflix and chill with their coffee.
Life is the great teacher play with it, not with video games they add no value to your life.
Must Follow these 5-Hour rule in your life from today, we want you to be successful.
