Redwood Origins Review 10,000 Hours Theory

To investigate exactly what it takes for professionals to become masters of their craft, Sales and marketing firm Redwood Origins have been reviewing the theory that it takes 10,000 hours to reach a level of expertise.


Redwood Origins has been focusing on the idea that ‘nothing beats Work Ethic’ and that success does not come by way of taking shortcuts or luck. Those who reach the upper levels of their field, industry or even infamy, only do so by developing a solid work ethic.


A solid work ethic is the foundations upon which an individual can build a reputation for their skill or knowledge. It is a key driver to finding focus in whatever ambition a person may have and succeed in that field.


A theory that concurs with this view is the 10,000-hour rule, invented by Malcolm Gladwell who stated that ‘Researchers have settled on what they believe is the magic number for true expertise: 10,000 hours.’


The idea stems from a series of studies conducted by Anders Ericsson on violin players. In the study, he found that elite performers had averaged more than 10,000 hours of practice each whereas those who were less able had averaged around 4000 hours by the age of 20. Ericsson, himself concluded that many of the characteristics one would have thought to be the result of innate talent are instead, the result of intense practice. The idea that a person could practice intensely and with enough duration could develop a newbie into an expert, led to the release of Gladwell’s famous book.


An idea that expertise can manifest from enough hard work and practice, Redwood Origins advocate their workforce to do the very best they can so that they too can become experts at what they do. Repetition is the mother of skill; nobody goes in as a naturally good driver or even an expert tennis player, all skills take dedication, training, interest and a desire to work on the weaknesses. Redwood Origins advise people to achieve their goals by working as hard as they can. Success is no easy feat, and it takes an extraordinary amount of effort to achieve the extraordinary.


Based in Norwich, Redwood Origins is a sales and marketing company that overshadows competition with its bold and engaging marketing campaigns. The firm is a collective of expert, highly skilled at turning brand vision into reality and demonstrating this to customers for the best possible experience of a client’s product or service.
