I saw a news piece on CBS Sunday Morning Show about practice and athletic success. Some have theorized that people, if they spend 10,000 hours practicing, can become accomplished at an activity.

So, if we apply that to war gaming...how many of us consider ourselves experts/accomplished because of our time in? Despite the protestations of my spouse I have not spent the requisite amount of time (but would love to try!).

Got the time in. Accomplished, in the sense that I have a core competence in understanding
general rules and such (probably took a lot less time). Little sign that there's a significant
competitive edge with lots of time put in.

Ah, I didn't think of the one title option.

Easily have put in 10,000 hours into wargaming but I am anything but an expert in anything.  Malcolm Gladwell said in his book, OUTLIERS, that those 10K hours only mean something if you have talent to begin with.  Well then, maybe there's my problem!  Either that or I need to stick to one game title to get good at it!
