Maxwell on Experts

“If a person will spend one hour a day on the same subject for five years, that person will be an expert on that subject” (from Motivational speaker Earl Nightingale).

“Expert” may be an overstatement, but how would I know. I haven’t spent five years doing this.

But I am reminded of another quote:

Never overestimate what you can do in one year, and never underestimate what you can do in five years.

Or to quote myself:

You will never get anything done if you don’t do something.

By the way, Maxwell has a plan for this at the link. Just plug your own topic into it. It might work.

I used to listen to Nightingale on the radio in Jamaica when I was a teenager. He had a beautiful voice!
