It is said that in order to achieve success in one field, ten thousand hours are required. The ten thousand hour rule. For Mozart and the Beatles and Steve Jobs and Kim Yuna, it wasn’t an innate or genius or good luck that created their success, but the effort and pain of more than ten thousand hours of work. It could be that work, relationships, and love are you have to work hard and try and suffer til the very end. It ain’t over til it’s over.
