How this Blog Will Help You (Finally) Realize Your DreamsNovember 17th, 2016 by Jonathan Merritt and Margaret Feinberg
So you want to be a writer, huh? It probably won’t surprise you that it takes a lot of work. Ask yourself this question: How many hours have I spent trying to realize my dreams?
Maybe you’re starting out and you’ve only invested time thinking about it. Or maybe you’ve established a website or Facebook page and have released a few posts into the world. Or, perhaps you’re an overachiever and have already published an article on a website or in a magazine.
Most aspiring writers quit long before they invest enough time to realize their dreams.
In his bestselling book Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell says it takes 10,000 hours to achieve mastery in a field. Maybe you haven’t come anywhere close enough to that long trail of zeros. Chances are, even some of the super-duper over-achievers reading this post haven’t reached that lofty goal yet.
