It's all talk. I'd say that anyone willing to put in 10,000 hours probably will develop "grit" along the way. Also, there's a lot of handwaving there. What's "good enough"? Playing an instrument, for example. When is that "good enough" and when is it "expert"? It's hard to say.

I think any sort of metric is really bullshit for this. But it pretty much requires one thing: continuous practice. Do something long enough (while paying attention and focusing on it) and you're sure to get it eventually. Hell, that's basically the core essence of my learning method as well as computer science itself..
