10,000 Hours

Yesterday in institute we learned that it only takes three things to be great at things:

1. Sufficient Ability

2. Opportunity

3. 10,000 Hours

Today, I sat down and drew the first thing in front of me: my purse. I didn't over think my drawing; just drew.



The result was a very mediocre drawing. 

When I was finished, I forwent criticizing myself or criticizing the so-so drawing. Instead I thought "I could be good at this after 10,000 hours."

(Side note: is "forwent" a real word? If so, it is my new favorite word.)

I think I will draw more.
