There’s an idea that’s long circulated the space of self-mastery and professional development about what it takes to become an official, bonified ‘expert’. The idea came out of a 1993 paper by Dr Anders Ericsson, in which he suggested that through committing 10,000 hours of deliberate practice, you can become an expert in almost any subject or field. Ericsson’s research picked up traction after it appeared in Talent is Overrated, a book which flipped the idea of inborn talents and natural ability on its… Read more

An ophthalmic surgeon’s guide to Laser Eye Surgery
