First 100 hours

There are many things I would love to be able to do. When you are 5 you try everything. You have not yet been defined and so every child is a potential artist, engineer, doctor, astronaut, dancer, etc. etc. At some point we start putting things aside and becoming serious. There are some passions that become like phantom limbs... A niggle that doesn't go away. You watch someone playing the guitar... and wish. You see someone dancing the tango... And wish.

What if our default was to give everything 100 hours? To get over the initial hurdle and difficulty. How much French could you understand and speak after 100 hours of purposeful practice? How well could you cook? 100 hours of law? 100 hours of anatomy?

How far could you take someone in your speciality if given 100 hours?
