Talent is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else

5.00

Why don’t people who work hard all their lives excel in their professions? Are there specific, secret techniques that world-class performers use to rise above the rest? People often assume that those who excel are simply naturally gifted, and thus do not bother making an effort to be the best. Yet perhaps it is not innate abilities, but rather a specific type of practice and focus, which separates world-class performers from the rest. And perhaps it is available to anyone with just a bit of hard work. In “Talent Is Overrated,” Colvin uses a variety of real-world examples to deconstruct our notion of “talent” and what truly underlies it. Readers will learn about the routines of the greatest athletes, and how they too can excel through a technique known as deliberate practice. Anyone can indeed achieve greatness… but most, won’t due to the intense commitment that it requires. Yet for those willing to commit, “Talent Is Overrated” can illuminate the path to excellence.

“Great performance is in our hands far more than most of us ever suspected.”
