Whether it’s 10,000 hrs or 10,000 experiments, shouldn’t that be the determining factor for hiring/promoting?

- Amazon / DesignHot==dogGladwell tells really good stories. He finds some bit of conventional wisdom, then makes a counterintuitive argument about how it’s wrong, and then supplements it with a few anecdotes that fit his point. He’s a master of glossing over complex affairs while making it look like he deeply examined them. But he’s a fantastic writer. No doubt.Jun 25, 20181
- Starbucks / EngLeOops10,000 hrs wasn’t a rule it was just the average if I remember correctly. The range was actually 5000-15000 hours depending on people’s backgrounds.
And that just deals with mastery of a domain. Mastery != Job performance. I’m sure we’ve all met that engineer that is intelligent and talented but can’t get features out the door to save their life.
Idk it’s kinda already in place. Yoe and whiteboardjng (good ones) and system design questions address this in a round about way imo
- Uber wydddThe company doesn't pay you nor promote you for how hard you work but what value you bring to the company. If someone else do more in 1000h than you do in 10k hours, then this person will get the promotion...
There are a lot of hard worker who only get minimum wages, that's life
- GE idKt2710000/8 hrs will make 1250 work days will in turn become 3.4 years this is for average person and if you born to work and work 20 hrs still you need to clock 1.3 years to be hired or promoted. It does make any logical sense and there is no way to measure how quickly you can learn logic...unless until you want to participate in time bound burger eating competition or some repetitive mundane tasks..
