Malcolm Gladwell is a writer for the New Yorker and the author of successful non-fiction books like Blink, The Tipping Point, and Outliers. Gladwell writes in a way that can be understood by many people despite the fact that he is a serious writer talking about important issues. One of the things that Gladwell talks about in his book Outliers is how people become successful at the things they do. He gives the example of many people who are now famous such as Bill Gates and the Beatles, and he finally comes to the conclusion that the secret of success is hard work.
This is not news to anyone, of course. We all believe, to some extent or the other, that hard work can lead us into the things we most desire. Still, it’s possible for us to get bogged down time and time again, and not believe that this is really true. We might start to think that it’s just chance which determines whether or not we’re successful.
If you read the stories Gladwell puts forth, you’ll realize that even people who are known to be successful got there through hard work. The Beatles performed together hundreds of times while touring Europe. Bill Gates used to sneak into the computer lab at his school for long hours everyday even though this wasn’t allowed. Eventually, Gladwell argues, people who have put 10,000 hours of work into something become extremely successful; they achieve greatness.
Improve Your Ratings by Using Gladwell’s Theory
Imagine what this could mean for your website. Everyone knows that you’re supposed to be updating your blog regularly in order to have good ratings. However, given how slowly things change, you might come to doubt this. You might start to believe that having a blog that is updated regularly isn’t doing anything for your business. But if you believe what Malcolm Gladwell says, all you have to do is keep updating regularly and eventually, you will get the kinds of ratings that you want for your website.
It might seem like too much to expect that you put 10,000 hours of work into your website or your blog! But if you do put that much effort into your business, you will find that it grows. And putting time or money into your blog is yet another way of putting those hours into your business. So become an outlier by buying more blog posts.
