When’s the best time to switch to a new job / role / company?

If it takes 10,000 hours for someone to become an expert at something, then it would take you 3 years at 60 hours a week and 5 years at 40 hours / week to become an expert – which is an euphemism for “you are no longer learning”.

I am not sure I believe the number 10,000, but food for thought anyway on how often you should consider doing something new.

The book itself “Outliers” is interesting but I am not convinced its in the “Blink” or “Tipping point” class.
