The first thing I'm going to try to learn is to juggle. Juggling might not be the hardest or coolest thing to learn but considering it's December and I'll be traveling it will be something that I can do and practice where ever I am. Plus I'm going to start and small and slowly graduate to a bigger and more exciting skills/abilities as this experiment goes on. Goal for this month is learn to juggle three balls, then maybe add a fourth or change up the object to something else. This will be my first attempt at testing out the 20 Hour theory and I hope it will be a success.

Recently I was trying to brainstorm for a new project idea since my first few ideas weren't that great. I decided to turn to the internet for some inspiration and came across a video with an astounding title. "How to Learn Anything in 20 Hours". This caught my eye and drew my in. After watching it the speaker describes that about 30-40 years ago there was a book that theorized to perform anything at an elite level you must put in at least 10000 hours. This has become a solid concept in most peoples mind. The speaker then describes that his findings suggest that it only takes about 20 hours of work before you start to plateau. This concept intrigued me and inspired the idea for my 20 time project. I'm going to try to put this concept to the test and see if I can learn at least 6 new things/skills in six months.
