Sidestepping the Expert Trap

Heard of the 10,000 Rule?

It takes about 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert. The rule applies whether you’re cooking gourmet meals or mastering origami.

As you can see in the video, I’m nowhere near the 10,000 hours I need to get good at this! 

But there’s more to expertise than practice. It takes focus, determination and other amazing qualities. And sure — aiming to be an expert is great but there’s a downside.

You could fall into The Expert Trap.

Expertise creates a kind of “mental blindness” — you think you know everything. But growth happens where there’s curiosity and continuous learning — a mindset known in Zen Buddhism as the Beginner’s Mind.  

A wise Zen Master once said,

In the Beginner’s Mind there are many possibilities. In the expert’s mind there are few.

The Beginner’s Mind opens you up to creative solutions that can transform your business and your life.
