THE BACKPAGE Term 2 Week 9

The idea of 10,000, popularised by Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers, has become a norm about how we think about training to become an elite athlete. For anyone who is not familiar with the concept, what Gladwell said was: that to become an elite performer in any field required a minimum of 10,000 hours of training. Matthew Syed, in his book Bounce, takes the concept one step forward, adding that the 10,000 hours needs to be very specific and goal-directed. Further, these concepts have been discussed recently in some of the most popular books, from Dweck’s Growth Mindset to Duckworth’s GRIT, that are having an influence on the way we think about education.

Yassmin’s foremost athletic experience came in the form of rugby, with the product of The Scots College earning a spot in the Australian Schoolboys team, dominating the wing with his impressive combination of size and speed. He was also a member of his school’s firsts basketball team, with his main exposure to football coming from what he saw on television, and video games.
