  1. Mind blowing video- I gasped when I saw the slide about emotional barriers….. wow! Thank you for explaining and then demonstrating your point. It is so true… thank you!

  2. I'm here at 2 AM stressed out because of my exam next week trying to find some magic method to learn all that stuff 😀

  3. I have been playing this to keep my computer active while I'm away and I've never actually watched this video and I just came back to it singing: I won't hesitate no more, no more. It cannot wait, I'm yours. 'Cause you were amazing, we did amazing things. If I could, then I would, I'd go wherever you will –Can you feel the love tonight. (Laughter) I am confused but OK.

  4. Anybody else think that he's a straight and WAY more elegant version of Dean Craig Pelton from Community? Heck, they even sound somewhat alike HAHAHAHAHA

  5. Don't like the way he presented his idea. It was never 10,000 hours to learn something new.. it's 10k hours to master something

  6. 20 giờ:
    phân nhỏ các kĩ năng + học cái cốt lõi chi phối những cái khác + học những kĩ năng mình cần + vượt qua nỗi sợ bắt đầu + 20 giờ -> bất cứ kết quả nào bạn muốn

  7. Why is it that in every single motivational video, the comments are always discouraging and pessimistic?!! I finish the video feeling like i can conquer the world then i read the comments like..??????? BRUH I'M NEVER GONNA READ COMMENTS AGAIN

  8. This is one of the best TedTalk I have ever watched, it's so fantastic. It made my day, that's is the perfect key to stop procrastination, and to actually starting something.

  9. my profile pic of a set of flat opposing blades opposed by its own equal opposite half's is definitely ignored physics here

  10. betz limits physics law ? Un hun sure ! ignores Einstein relativity when oil discovery's occurs no other inventions possible convincing ? from get go .

  11. 1. 9:47 Deconstruct the skill

    2. 10:30 Learn enough to self-correct

    3. 11:19 Remove practice barriers

    Copied from other comments; for myself

  12. Please my Friends i need a personne to help i want to be software engineer and i dont know everything about it i need Guy to guide me from 0to the end

  13. I'd like to ask something important. Let's say I do want to learn 5 differents skills (Photoshop, play the piano, cooking, New language and solve Rubik's cube). Should I start learning all of them at same time or should I begin focusing just on one and then move on?

  14. I enjoyed this a lot. Learning new skills doesn't require 10k hour rule but it can be done by starting with 1percent daily improvement for 20hr. This is really helpful in this pandemic situation to acquire any skill at its best!!! Thanks Tedx!
