What is a Wedding Rhyme Strategy for developing talent? [Costume play: Princess Amidala (Star Wars) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)]
Joy Miller, author of the homeschooling website fivejs.com website, did the crisp graphic design and layout for my ebook workshop “How to Discover and Develop Your Child’s First 100 Hours of Talent.” Because of our conversations on this interesting topic of talent development, she asked me to do a guest post for her personal blog. I happily agreed and here’s what I came up with: “How to Build Talent in Your Child: A Wedding Rhyme Strategy.” Check out the graphics she did for that post too! This is the take-away I wanted parents to get: yes, develop a traditional talent, but make sure your child finds a way to weave with a few other skills to make a real, modern, and valuable talent.
The 10,000-hours rule is the principle that it takes 10,000 hours of concerted focus, training, and learning in order to become one of the world’s best within a specific field of human activity.
It is a rule-of-thumb could also be expressed as saying it takes about ten years of dedication with 4 hours of daily training to become great in your talent. Ten years of that regimen will place you among the top ten people in the world who are doing the same thing you are doing.
10ktotalent is the 10,000-hour rule as applied to children. It's about crafting a custom strategy for your child so he can find something specific and early enough around which he can focus the many hours needed to achieve lift-off. 10ktotalent also teaches you how to turn a beginning talent into something that will make sense to your child’s adult life.
