Have you ever added up all the hours you've spent in your profession? If you're like most members of Associated Skin Care Professionals (ASCP), your typical work week includes 10–20 hours of hands-on client sessions. Of course, that doesn't include all the time you spend on handling day-to-day tasks, learning new skills, or running a business. Back in 2008, in his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell popularized the idea that it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to reach world-class standard in any fi eld of study. For someone who averages 20 hours a week, that works out to a little more than nine and a half years. This "10,000-hour rule" has been questioned, however—especially when it comes to professional achievement. The Click Moment, by Frans Johansson, is another interesting book on the topic of how luck, skill, and practice combine to create success. Johansson argues that in an unpredictable fi eld without a set of obvious rules, success has more to do with your ability to make the most of the opportunities that come your way. Here's one such opportunity—and it's free: ASCP's continuing education. From our premium Skinpro Education online classes to the 65-plus hours of webinars in our archive, you can learn something new today by logging in at This year in ASCP Skin Deep, we'll help you create success with a new Q&A column from Dr. Mark Lees that takes you beyond the basics of skin care knowledge, and a six-column series from ASCP Director of Education Susanne Schmaling to build six essential skills. Regardless of how you defi ne success—or whether you believe the biggest factor is hard work, natural talent, or opportunity—it makes sense to plan the effort you put in. Every expert agrees deliberate, focused effort brings better results. We're always here with new ways for you to learn, whether you have one hour or 10,000 hours to spend. How Do You Create Success?
