The title is misleading. He is mostly talking about breaking past the"frustration barrier"

20 hours It's only for a basic notion if you're talking about something like yoga or a new language or music. You just need a lot more practice than that. I think it's more like 10,000 hours.

I would be very curious whether Josh (or anyone here agreeing with this 20 hours) would sit behind me on a passenger jet which I (try to) fly with 20 hours of knowledge/experience of piloting a plane. :D

I think that's a totally age dependent theory. I'm 50+ and bugger all wants to stick in the memory now.

I don't mind the 20 hours studying but skipping for 2 days is asking too much.
