I came to Japan in winter 2012. Under the induction of friends, I began to go to several ski resorts each year.
March 30, 2013, the first time to Ishiuchimaruyama Ski Resort. At that time I could do nothing but to shovel snow, and I did not learn any skill.
I was taken to the top of the hill, looking down, thinking “can I get this down?” The result is of course rolling down to the bottom of hill.
Fortunately, some of the peers have made a reservation of delicious buckwheat noodles.
In March 2017, I once again came to Ishiuchimaruyama. I found the bus stop and went to rental store to change clothes. This year I began to learn snowboarding. I bought gears and made progress.
Once again I came to the top of the mountain, thinking that “good, I want to go down and refresh the speed record.”
Getting on the lift and down on and forth I kept practicing. Amazingly, the maximum speed of more than 60km / h according.
Full of satisfying smile. Snowboarding in winter is a kind of happiness.
Rich and delicious dinner. Give myself a reward.
Although I kept down, but I firmly believe in 10,000 hours genius theory. In fact 10000 hours can not be achieved, but with 1000 hours to achieve the level of genius 80% of the target will not change.
