Ever wonder what makes professional athletes, musicians and artists so great in their fields? Dan McLaughlin was curious whether time and dedicated practice was indeed all it took, so he decided to test the theory of 10,000-hours-to-expertise for himself, quitting his day job to chase a PGA Tour dream. Former SUCCESS Publisher Darren Hardy sat down with McLaughlin to hear his story and see how those 10,000 hours of golf are coming along.

This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection, available in the November 2015 edition of SUCCESS magazine.

Favorite quote:

“Deliberate practice is being able to pinpoint your weaknesses and then have the right way to attack them and improve.”

 —Dan McLaughlin
