10,000 hours

what do you spend 10,000 hours thinking about
what do you do best, having honed your craft in it over the past 10 years of your life?

the serendipitous nature of 10 recurrent in my life thus far. 10,000 hours, 10 months, 10 years.
Being in this place for the 10th month got me yet a little more insight on myself.

i learnt now, you have to be patient in waiting for it.
you have to give it your all and have faith that the invested effort would not go to naught.
i learnt to appreciate the beauty of words a little more,
to be more deliberate in the attempts to hone your craft
in that hard work always pays off, albeit not immediately
and that every reflection or view that you tinker with every now and then
should indeed be tinkered with respect, tossed back and forth with deeper thought
if not just to show respect for that insight,
but to also not let yourself fall through the cracks of losing that rootedness and humility
of entertaining that you yourself can get lost in keeping yourself in check

perhaps i don’t have answers on what i spent 10,000 hours in the past doing.

but i do know i still have 10,000 hours more in the future to start investing.

and so you carry on with that journey..

of searching for what truly means the world to you.


you need to have the courage to search

if you want to have the jubilance of finding.


that is what i have learnt.

10,000 hours.
