#1077 A profound effect

The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.

In fact, researchers have settled on what they believe is the magic number for true expertise: ten thousand hours.

Emotion is contagious.

Achievement is talent plus preparation.

We need to look at the subtle, the hidden, and the unspoken.

The values of the world we inhabit and the people we surround ourselves with have a profound effect on who we are.

Quotes by Malcolm Gladwell

- When have you observed the tipping point in action?
- What skill(s) have you polished through thousands of hours of practice?
-  What subtlety do you need to think about?
- With what values and people do you surround yourself?
