Talent is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else (Paperback)Geoff Colvin (author)
- Not available
What if everything you know about raw talent, hard work, and great performance is wrong?
Very few people are truly great at what they do. But why aren't they? Why don't we manage businesses like Warren Buffett, play golf like Tiger Woods or play the violin like Itzhak Perlman?
Greatness doesn't come from inborn talent but from 'deliberate practice'. This isn't the kind of hard work that your parents told you about, but more of it equals better performance. Talent is Overrated will change the way you think about your life and work - and will inspire you to achieve more in everything you do. Great performance isn't reserved for a preordained few.
