I have been following the exploits of Reggie ‘N’ Bollie in the UK X-Factor competition. The name ‘Reggy Zippie’ rang a bell but I didn’t remember Bollie’s name.
I just spent some time checking out their old songs.
Reggie – Virgin – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvExb3Ka6lM. It was a popular song.
You remember the song ‘You May Kiss the Bride’? It was a huge hit back then. Bollie sang it.
Both of these songs are about 10 years ago.
Again, the 10,000 hour rule comes to mind. Keeping at it, working at one’s craft, 4 hours a day, taking about 10 years to hit the top.
Malcom Gladwell wrote about it well in ‘Outliers’.
In Sebitically Speaking, I wrote about the power behind the platform performance and stated that “The quality of the performance one has on the big stages of life is usually determined by the quality and quantity of preparation time spent off stage.”
What is it that you are working on that you feel is taking too long to be noticed? Keep at it – many examples abound. When the door of opportunity opens on a big stage, only the preparation you have diligently done will make it possible for you to own that stage and move on from there.
Nsempiisms. My mouth has fallen.
