The 10,000 Hours rule of mastery.

Here is a good article that explains where research is at regarding the 10,000 hour rule of mastery. http://healthland.time.com/2013/05/20/10000-hours-may-not-make-a-master-after-all/

TL:DR, recent developments in research have questioned the idea that hours of practice alone translates to skill. In this way Marc was correct in saying there is other factors involved in reaching that top tier level of performance.
