Talent is Overrated focused on exactly what the title advertises, hard work or rather deliberate practice is what truly matters. This book reenforced my knowledge of practicing something you’re focusing your efforts on. But it took it slightly in a different direction. It really made sure the reader understood to race through or skip over the items that they were already great at doing. This then allows the person trying to accomplish deliberate practice to focus on the things they do poorly in order to drastically improve upon them. Then doing something end to end with the same easy across the board.
I enjoyed this book, if you don’t know anything about what I’m talking about when I say deliberate practice, read this book! I had some reference to it but still found value in reviewing Talent is Overrated!
