Someone once told me about the 10,000-hour rule, which theorizes that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become a master at something. If you’re passionate about something then it won’t feel like that long.
It could be anything from getting healthy and changing your lifestyle, to painting or something creative. Whatever it is, a little work at it every day will make a noticeable difference in the long run. If you take progress pics along the way, you’ll feel like a master of your craft.
People are sharing their progress pics over on Reddit and the results will inspire you to get to work on something you’re passionate about. It’s about progress, not perfection.
