Re: Ranking systems in different countries

I think you are taking the 10000 hours thing a little too literally. It comes from Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers" book, but it is hardly a scientific fact.

It takes as long as it takes, depending on many, many factors. Practice is important, but there is no magic formula to calculate the number of hours required.
