I fear not the man who has practised 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practised one kick 10,000 times - Bruce Lee.

To paraphrase Bruce Lee: I bet not on the man who’s read 10,000 books and applied their lessons once, but I bet on the man who read one book and applied its lessons 10,000 times - a friend on twitter.

I am a book worm - specifically non-fiction. I read around 3 books a month and it has never crossed my mind that I need to apply some of the lessons from the books right away. I can say that this tweet came at the right time when I am reading a book by Tom Kelley on innovation.

I want to use the same practice of one kick 10,000 times concept. What if I put down the book and practice what I've learned 10,000 times? This is an interesting take and I would love to test and see what comes out of it.

Here's what I have decided to start with: 

1. Storytelling

2. Customer user research

Now, the challenge comes down on how to implement this at a ground using empirical data. Maybe I should make a prototype and practice it for 10,000 times? I don't know, I'll update this page with more findings from this experiment.

    @chacha - interesting idea. I don't read at your pace but still the idea of practicing one many times appeals to me too. I should join you in this experiment.
    I will start with practicing atomic habits. That has a bunch of things to practice.
