/comm-it-moont/ - noun

what transforms a dream into a reality.

You’ve probably heard of the 10,000 hour rule.

Made popular by Malcolm Gladwell’s best-selling book “Outliers”, the 10,000 hour rule states that it takes 10,000 hours of intensive practice to master any skill.  

What you may not have heard of is the 100 hour rule. 

The 100 hour rule states that it only takes one hundred hours of active learning to become much more competent than an absolute beginner.

According to the 100 hour rule if you were to commit 1 hour a day you could learn a new skill in three months. At 5 hours a day it would take you just three weeks.

Here at the ILHA we wanted to kick 2022 off right. We want this to be YOUR year.


If you are reading this you love Liberty. 

If you are reading this when it was written then you are at the beginning of a brand new year.

A year full of the same promise, potential and unknown as every other year.


But we want this year to be different for you. We want you to look back and say wow, that was the year everything changed.


So we wanted to start the year with a challenge.
