Last week I finished two good reads: “The Last Harem” (by Peter Prange) and “Outliers: The Story of Success” (by Malcolm Gladwell). I also did some research on Henri Cartier-Bresson – one of the greatest photographers of the Twentieth Century. 

Interesting thing that two authors mention (Gladwell and Cartier-Bresson) is the 10,000 (Hour) Rule. Henri Cartier-Bresson said that “your first 10,000 photographs are your worst” while Gladwell claims that the key to success (among other things) is a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of around 10,000 hours… 
So, that would mean I should spend about three hours a day over the next ten years on my photo-taking-passion… 
And what’s 3 hours in a 24 hours day?
