The 100 Hour Asset

In Seth Godin’s daily blog, he speaks about the 100 hour asset.

If you invest 100 hours in a rare skill, you’re likely to acquire it. If you could learn to sharpen a tool better than your peers, organize a high-performance database, see the nuances in some sector of cryptography, know how to build a pretty-good WordPress site or really understand the arc of a particular writer’s career, you’d have something of value. Something that anyone who was focused enough to invest 100 hours could have, but few will choose to commit to.

String together a few of those, or dig deep and develop a 1,000 hour asset and now you truly have something.

When I first seriously got into writing I improved tremendously in the first month spending roughly 100 hours either writing or learning about writing. My writing goal is not to make it a 100 hour asset, nor a 1000 hour asset, but a 10000 hour asset, as Malcolm Gladwell would put it.

But I’d like to collect 100 hour assets along the way.

What 100 hour assets do you want to acquire?
