Talent is Overrated; by Geoff Colvin

What really Separate World-class Performers From Everybody Else

One of the ways to succeed in life is to be talented. If you are talented, it will open doors of opportunities before you thereby making you succeed faster.

There is no doubt that most successful athletes, artists, writers or musicians we have today are talented in their areas, just like any other person. What then is responsible for the rising of some people among others who possess the same kind of  talent?

But you will agree with me that to succeed in life, you need more than talent. If talent is all you need then why have all the talented people not succeeded?

We have talented and educated derelicts who have not been able to use their talent and education to better their lot.

We have so many talented people roaming the streets have not been able to achieve anything for themselves.

The question now is:

* Is talent not all what is needed?

* What is the role of Talent in Success Equation?

This book ‘Talent is Overrated’ written by Geoff Colvin is an eye opener to the role of talent in success. He explained why some talented people are successful and some others talented people are not successful.

A must read for everyone.
