    Does Gladwell have any thoughts on spending too many hours in one’s work, thus regressing any progress made? I look at some in Congress and wonder. I certainly think that for myself, rather than becoming more expert in graphic design, I’m certainly less interested in it and choose to do less of it. Where is that point of negativity after 10K hours (or about 5 years)?

    No, he doesn’t talk about burn-out. That might make an interesting topic, too.

    His point is the time needed to build up expertise. With that expertise, should opportunity present itself and should one be able and willing to seize it, one can go far.
