Where does true talent come from, anyway? And what’s more important, genes or practice?
This scientific war rumbles on with the new release of a meta-study in Psychological Science (a study that analyzed 88 other studies) concluding that practice time matters less than innate gifts.
Step One: Pick a skill you have always wanted to possess.
Guitar, sales, comedy, golf, public speaking. Don’t pick the whole thing–just one targeted area. If it’s guitar, focus on one particular song. If it’s golf, focus on putting.
Practice doesn’t always make perfect, and you many not just be born with it. So where does true talent really come from?
