Anybody who doesn't take advantage of this, and is in the area, is an idiot. Mark is one of the top instructors in the country, and is part of the up and coming SPF National Pool School Tour!

Your comment resonates with the theme of the book, which shows how every champion or worldclass performer has two things in common when it comes to how they became successful -- opportunity and practice/experience. Young champions, 15 to 20 years old, are merely the beneficiaries of advantageous opportunities and about 10 years of dedicated practice and experience.

If you are fortunate enough to live in an area that provides certain learning/training opportunities, or as a child happen to have parents that provide certain opportunities (as with Tiger Woods, Bill Gates, Mozart, Joe Bonnamassa, etc...), you'll have an amazing advantage over the average person when it comes to mastering an instrument, a sport, or a game. Of course, you must have passion/desire, dedication to practice. Stick with it for about 10,000 hours, typically about 10 years, and you will reach a worldclass level.

Imagine how many children have had opportunities provided, but lacked the interest or desire to stick with it. Yet a kid somewhere else, maybe right down the street or in another town, would've stuck with it and become the next world champion golfer or chess player or pool player or whatever...but the opportunity wasn't available or provided.

I agree with that, its all about getting the right training and competing against those world class players. Having the right connections early on makes this easier if you have the willpower. People tend to play to their competitions skill level over a long period of time.



PS -- Jim Collins put out a pretty good series on why businesses are successful, I think the names of some of the series is like Good to Great and Great by choice. Also Zero to One by Peter Theil is pretty good as well.

I saw that and considered it, but I know I can't keep up physically shooting pool for 8+ hours a day 4 days straight. I wouldn't be able to walk past day 2. I just started down the path of taking the game seriously so and wanting to improve so I am not sure starting with such an intensive program would do me much good. I personally feel like I need a couple 3 -4 hour lessons so I can practice what I learn between them.
