In Malcolm Gladwell's book 'The Outliers'
Outliers: The Story of Success is a non-fiction book written by Malcolm Gladwell and published by Little, Brown and Company on November 18, 2008. In Outliers, Gladwell examines the factors that contribute to high levels of success. To support his thesis, he examines the causes of why the majority of Canadian ice hockey players are born in the first few months of the calendar year, how Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates achieved his extreme wealth, how The Beatles became one of the most successful musical acts in human history, how Joseph Flom built Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom into one of the most successful law firms in the world, how cultural differences play a large part in perceived intelligence and rational decision making, and how two people with exceptional intelligence, Christopher Langan and J. Robert Oppenheimer, end up with such vastly different fortunes. Throughout the publication, Gladwell repeatedly mentions the "10,000-Hour Rule", claiming that the key to success in any field is, to a large extent, a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of around 10,000 hours. Wikipedia

YSTA- is about learning to present yourself to any audience, from Big Bird, to your Grandmother.

Have you started your 10,000 hours? Have you had the opportunity to mentor our future? Sadly our world is in upheaval, it's run by liars, crooks and murders! Did anyone besides me ever wonder is that 'Ruler' treated his people like he would like to be treated? I am not sure if there is such a model?

YSTA - is about opening minds, to the ethic of hard work ( the 10,000 hours ).

Friends please help me " Change the world one child at a time "

Find a teacher, a Toastmaster, a parent, a grandparent. Help mentor these future leaders?

Make 'The Big Show' the next great experience in their lives. As so many mentioned in 'The Outliers' start their 10,000 hours now.
