The idea of specialisation dates back to renowned Scottish economist Adam Smith more than 300 years ago. The last decade has seen the rise of the specialist. In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell has spoken about the concept of 10,000 hours of practice that goes on to make a specialist good at what he does.

In this video, Anupam Gupta, who co-authored the book 'The Victory Project-Six Steps To Peak Potential', along with Saurabh Mukherjea, talks about the three steps that can get you started on the path to becoming a specialist.
