    Known about the 10,000hrs rule for a while, but I think the 7 Steps to Cheat the Rule are easily done just by being on this forum and trying to get involved. I've still a while to go myself to be the type of map illustrator I now want to be, but I've been using Photoshop for the last 14 years so I'm at least well on the way for knowing how to use my tools

    So is teaching others good (cheat no. 6) or not good (upper right table, no.3)?

    I guess whoever made the infograph hasn't spent 10.000 hours in practice...

    Kind of makes you doubt these are the guys to go to for help "cheating the rule" doesn't it?

    Hmm, I just wonder: Why is 'teaching others' a 'no' in the top right but mentioned as way of cheating the 10.000 hour rule as well?

    ravells, you can still give him rep

    Teaching others is good if you are teaching them things that you haven't fully mastered and so learn something from the experience. Teaching others is bad if you do it as a dull, repetitive routine from which you learn nothing new toward the skill (that is, it's not deliberate practice).

    As an instructor myself i can totally agree with waldronate. Tesching is Booth a Great way to stay fresh in your craft, but also to Be stuck in routinesitzung and Formulas.

    Here's an article that refutes the 10,000 hour rule:

    The Curse of the 10,000-hour ‘Talent Syndrome’

    After thinking about it, I agree with him.
