Key Takeaways

“Don’t just wait for something to happen to you. It’s not gonna happen by itself. Decide your life by yourself!”

How did you plan on this?

  • Yan is currently on his 10’000 hours journey to become a great artist, he is drawing every single day, using a stopwatch to measure it. It’s not about the hours though, it is about being psychologically prepared that it takes too much time
  • In order to do the 10’000 hours challenge, Yan saved a lot of chaos, he stopped partying, cut down on food and anything that is not necessary. He is fully focused. It takes a lot of sacrifices.
  • Yan is always frustrated when he learns, but that’s a good thing because that’s the only way you learn, if you are comfortable, you don’t learn and you should stay away from that.
