One nice thing about Sudbury schools is it gives you time to get going on the work of whatever it is that you want to be doing. No time to start on those “10,000 hours”? Why wait if you know what IT is? (BTW, I think the 10k hours thing is a little off, but my point is… get to it, if you want to!) And if you don’t know yet? That’s great too! Plenty of time to think and explore and converse! How many of us spent our 20s and 30s (and 40s and…) trying things out? Why not start earlier?
