The simple path to becoming a highly-paid expert (new podcast with Tim Ferriss)

by Derek Halpern | Follow Him on Twitter Here

Social Triggers Insider with Tim Ferriss

Before you become a highly-paid expert, you must first BE an expert.

Yep…

That means you can’t “fake it til you make it,” but instead, you’ve got to be a REAL expert.

“How?”

Ever since Malcolm Gladwell released Outliers, the world believes it takes 10,000 Hours or 10 years to become an expert.

But what if I said “FORGET years!”

In the latest Social Triggers Insider master class, Tim Ferriss shares a simple framework for becoming an expert in weeks… or even DAYS.

How to Become World-Class At Anything In Days (Not Years)

In the below discussion, the New York Times best-selling author Tim Ferris and I talk about:

  • A simple but POWERFUL method for learning anything in weeks instead of years
  • How the fear of public failure can drive you to do anything
  • How to make a monumental task idiot-proof by using Warren Buffett’s “Margin of Safety”
  • DS3: The secret behind the 4-part framework for mastering anything
  • And much, much more.

If this isn’t just a one-off, an experiment, a mistake, even … if this really is your message, your story? Then I’m not your target audience, and I’m going to save us both some heartache and unsubscribe.

The world needs no more “four-hour” anythings (not that it’s really “4-hour anything” in the first place).

Reply

Derek Halpern

Annie, 4 hour is the Tim Ferriss brand. He doesn’t claim you can become an expert in 4 hours :-P. If you read my article, you’ll notice that I don’t even say you can become an expert in 4 hours.

I say you can speed up the process when you learn about Tim Ferriss’s simple framework known as DSSS.

But to really nail this home, here’s a quick personal story:

Back when I was a kid, I wanted to learn how to play chess. Instead of trying to memorize thousands of chess openings, I decided to focus on 3 specific openings. Then, I studied specific types of chess attacks (known as discovery, skewer, pin, and fork).

Once I learned the openings, those 4 chess attacks, I studied specific end game strategies as well.

All in all, I learned maybe 10 different things, and my chess playing skill went up 100 fold.

Now, I didn’t know this back when I was a kid, but looking back, I used Tim Ferriss’s DSSS framework for learning. And that’s why I was able to excel fast.

Was I grandmaster?

No.

But I was able to beat my dad and 99% of my friends.

And when I started playing online, my ELO score ended up being around 1700-1750 for lightning and blitz chess. (2,000 is considered a master).

Was I long ways away from becoming a master?

Absolutely.

But to this day, I know I can still go to the park in NYC, and give some of the Chess hustlers a run for their money.

Reply

Zach

Derek,

Love your chess story! I used to play a ton of chess when I was a bit younger too.

I still enjoy a game now and again.

Like you, I memorized a few different openings and so long as I didn’t play the same people too often, 99% of the time, I would win.

Anyway, I can relate to this story a lot.

Thanks for sharing.

A note to Annie Sisk: Come on, really? Derek is the master when it comes to actionable strategies that work. I had the privilege of meeting him and even talking with him one-on-one for an hour or so at Ryan Lee’s recent live event in Connecticut.

I’d be careful before you unsubscribe from someone as knowledgeable, creative, and honest as they come.

There’s not a better blog to follow on the web if you’re looking to grow your traffic, write articles that get read, and learn the psychology of how we, as humans, behave.

To Annie Sisk,

Your missing the point of the “4 Hour” books. Good luck.

Reply

Annie Sisk

No, I’m really not. I can disagree with the message without “missing the point,” you know.

Reply

Derek Halpern

No, you really are missing the point. There’s nothing to disagree with, as this is data, and you’re just disagreeing based on a single sentence.

I’d tell you to listen to the podcast, but your mind is already made up. It’s already closed. So you’ll listen to it with the intent of finding the “one gotcha, I knew I was right,” and you’d walk away feeling as if you were right.

I don’t promote being close minded on Social Triggers, and I know you know better. You’ve always been open minded in the past.

I’d already pre-ordered all the copies I plan on getting, or I’d be in, too!

I loved hearing though about the Deconstruction / Selection / Sequence / Stakes stuff. Although I’ve heard it before, that “money to a charity you hate, *in your name*” thing is magnificent!

A great reminder on the information gap, too, which I’ll be sure to integrate in our regular email / social media updates.

What was *really* fascinating though, was learning how to become a better teacher, and making sure that we can better distill the most effective strategies from the experts we interview, so they can help our readers / listeners / viewers even more.

Overall, a packed episode, Derek / Tim. Thanks for sharing!

Gotta comment on Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hours or 10 years to be an expert.
There is NO scientific research that backs this up as far as I can tell (though if anyone can find it, I know you can). His comments belong with this one: “It takes 21 days to create a new habit”.
Neither of these statements are fixed in granite. They are simply opinions and beliefs of others. We can choose to ignore them and improve our lives faster, or live by them.
Either way, it’s our choice.
Getting down from my soapbox now.

Reply

Jay Warner

RE: science of 10,000 hours. It’s rather unfair that Malcolm Gladwell gets linked to the 10,000 hour principle, considering he wasn’t actually involved in any of the research, or developing the theories behind it. He did however make it known in the mainstream far more effectively than anyone else.

The theory behind it, as examined by K. Anders Ericsson amongst others, is that ‘deliberate practice’ is key to mastering any skill. Deliberate practice involves total mental engagement and a ruthless focus on perfecting a technique, not just ‘practising’ without specific goals in mind.

The 10,000 hours refers to a rough average of the amount of time professionals have dedicated to deliberate practice during their rise to the top of their profession. Study subjects have included violinists, chess players, authors and athletes. It also has become a handy soundbite which unfortunately is frequently misused. I.e. you’re no good until you’ve done 10,000 hours of work.

In essence, if you want to be good at anything, you need to 1. dedicate time to it and 2. ensure that your practice hours are hard darn work :-).

PS. My background is a sports/performance psychologist so I can talk about this stuff all day long!

Reply

Derek Halpern

I echo what Jay said. While Gladwell got the credit, it was K Anders Ericsson that did the research. Also, other writes mentioned this rule in their work too (Geoff Colvin in Talent is Overrated, Dubner in a NYT article I believe, and many others).

Derek,

I’ve been trying for years to get into blogging. I’ve had so many great ideas but either failed to execute on them or I quit shortly after beginning. I’m on your list, but the email you sent today really caught my interest so I clicked on the link. I’m so glad I did because this podcast was one of the best I’ve ever heard!

I suffer from trying to do some of the things backwards that Tim was talking about in his interview, namely the ordering of “adherence, effectiveness, efficiency.” I always try to be efficient first when it’s obviously more important to just stick to the thing you’re trying to do rather than be good at it right away.

I definitely learned some new things and heard some old ones rehashed in a different way. It’s like I heard Brian Clark say once before: you hear the same things over and over but one day you hear it a different way and it really resonates with you and sticks. That’s what this podcast was for me, so thanks for securing that interview. It was epic.

I also ordered the kindle edition of The Four Hour Chef, even though I already cook very well and had no intentions on buying it, ha! I own The Four Hour Workweek as well and haven’t read it but I have to say after listening to that interview, I’m really impressed with Tim and can’t wait to read his new book as well as go back and read The Four Hour Workweek.

So again, thanks for this and hopefully you’ll be hearing my name around the blogosphere this coming year :)

Thank you and thank you to Timothy Ferris, another great turn of insight and valuable real-time help. I took away “adherence” as a key to learning. I’ve read thousands of books, attended hundreds of conferences and workshops, and hopped online for webinars. Many were conducted by truly brilliant leaders, however, after their expert layout of how to make it happen, I new in my gut, I wouldn’t do it. I couldn’t put a finger on it, but I new I wouldn’t do it. It didn’t fit my life, there were too many things I’d have to buy just to get started, or too many things to fit in my already overcrowded 24 hours. Convenience is what gets me started and further convenience and success is what keeps me in the game. Thanks guys!

Great podcast Derek and Tim – thank you! The biggest insight I got from this is how unimportant the method/efficiency is in the whole learning process. I’m very curious to know how to get better at selection and sequencing. I also wonder how big a role you think our attitude and beliefs plays in determining how quickly we can learning something….

Reply

Ben

I had the same question as you with sequencing. How do I get better at sequencing? Part of me thinks, use DSSS dumby! But of course if you want to learn a component of DSSS, it’s a tough approach. Any ideas?

Wow, amazing interview…. my biggest takeaway, which is something I have been thinking about a lot recently so it’s not new info, but a good affirmation, is the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote…

Tim gave a Cliff’s Notes version of it… here it is in it’s entirety:

“The man who knows how will always have a job. The man who also knows why will always be his boss. As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.”

I am excited to get the book… my wife will be excited that I might step into the kitchen and try to make something other than a PB&J or EasyMac.

And just like Jason, Nicole, Mohammed, Spyros, Alba, Michele, and Ryan, I also bought the Kindle version because I travel a lot. I have over 700 books in digital format, and there is no way in hell I could be as mobile and in-the-know as I am if I had to lug around all of those books in their physical form. So hopefully you will also cater to those who are helping Tim get on the Amazon Best Seller list as well.

Btw, Derek, your content AND design is killer! Keep doing what you’re doing!

Unbelievable interview with Tim! The wheels started turning immediately in terms of learning new things but also using these ideas to market the things I’ve already learned. I run a site on guitar and teaching guitar to very specific guitarists, so using the DSSS framework is unbelievable, but even better is marketing the idea to my audience. Awesome work, and I’m really excited to see where creating products based on the idea will take thing.

Hey Derek!

I was kind of on the fence about getting the book but then I saw Tim on CBS This Morning and totally ran to my computer to buy The 4-Hour Chef. I got it and I’m in! Just tweeted you and now I’m going to email Nicole.

Happy Holidays,
Brianna Lamberson

I’m in Derrick! Additionally, ordering this book got me going through my amazon wishlist and ordering 16 other books I’ve been dying to read :)

Hey Derek,

I found another hill for my morning run.

A bigger one, and one that I have yet to conquer.

I’ve been at it for the past 3 weeks and I cannot scale it with out my legs wobbling like a plate of runny panna cotta.

But as luck would have it I was listening to this Podcast on the way in to work and it made re-frame my attitude to my new nemesis.

Instead of trying to run up this hill in one go, I will now “Chunk it down” ( a phrase which I will borrow from you if you’re ok with that), and attempt to reach certain checkpoints along the incline.

Thanks for bringing us another great interview.

Peace

This interview was amazing, I’m going to have to listen to it again. After listening I’m definitely buying the book. Tim’s system for learning just blows my mind and gets me excited to learn better and be a better teacher!

Hi Derek,
I truly enjoyed your interview with Tim Ferris. Thank you for all your teaching. I made tons of notes even though I am going to buy the book :-)
Since I live in Canada, I have to go through amazon.ca; otherwise I don’t qualify for the free shipping. Is there a link on your site that I can use to by 3 books? Will Tim accept proof of purchase from Canadian site? And will I be able to get the bonus?
Thanks and best regards,
Ewa

As always, I thoroughly enjoy your insights Derek, and there’s always something more to learn from Tim Ferris. It’s twice now I’ve listened to the podcast, and it’s even more poignant the second time as I undertake my nemesis, pure OOP php, which for a wordpresser like me, I’ve happily avoided. So breaking it down into those stages, like selection, finding the minimum effective dose.

And it’s not just about learning, but about having skills, it can be applied to all aspects of life. I watched the trailer for Tim’s book, and it showed really cool things that are also practical, like folding a towel in less than 5 seconds. Simple but practical ways of getting more out life by doing things faster, learning things faster.

Great article. And the ODD THING out tip was awesome too.

Timothy Ferris is the best! 4 Hour Workweek changed my view of the internet. Loved listening to him go through how to learn (and teach) faster.

Is it possible that you can make the audios a bit louder? They are really quiet on my laptop and I don’t want to try to load them up on my phone. They are pretty hard to here.

If not, no worries.

Aloha,
Antonio

P.S. So far this is one of my favorite podcasts that you’ve done.

1. I NEARLY LOST THIS PAGE because of the SOCIALTRIGGERS newsletter signup on top – maybe post a line on top about “your podcast awaits … take a valuable moment .. to let us thank you with…” stream kind of thing.

I have to admit, dude, you are one of the best I have ever seen at eliciting comments. Something to learn there – but it MAY JUST BE YOUR SHOWTIME PERSONALITY!! DO you find the live voice to be a big help? I like voice because a lot of people don’t look all that great on video and WHAT’S THE POINT? Though it’s somewhat harder to deal with for some reason – maybe missing a webcam capture or two…. just saying.

Also thanks for making the podcast download easy. I know it will pay off for the time I spend.
