Talent and Skill

Talent you have naturally.

Skill you develop through hours and hours and hours of deliberate practice.

No matter how talented you are it does not matter if you do not develop skill.  It takes work.

80/20 rule:  The top 20% skill in each domain takes 80% of the value.  The mediocre 80% share the crumbs.

I didn’t figure this out when I was at school, nor university.  I got through on basic talent and a lucky ability to perform at my very best under exam conditions.

It took a big blow in my life to shake me out of reliance on talent and luck.

What do you think? Let me know you were here ;-)

It's The Little Things in Life that Bring Happiness

We're not something purely spiritual, you and I. We're not something purely mechanical either. We're some mystery in the middle. I write about the science behind the spirit and the spirit behind the science. Follow my exploration into the subtleties of mind and body in pursuit of simplicity and health.
