10,000 hours rule is a common myth. There is nothing magical about 10,000 hours.

It’s just an average number of hours best violinists had by the age of 20 (Ericsson1993). Malcolm Gladwell has likely misread the paper (or just adjusted to make a nice theory).

But, § Deliberate Practice does exist.
