Something amazing happens when you practice. Your performance actually improves.
Take music for example. This excerpt is from the book Talent is Overrated by Geoff Colvin.
When researchers in a separate study polled a sample consisting mainly of education professionals, more than 75 percent believed that singing, composing, and playing concert instruments requires a special gift or talent.
However, ...one factor, and only one factor, predicted how musically accomplished the students were, and that was how much they practiced.
Now apply that principle to value creation. The one who practices value creation the most performs the highest.
How valuable do you want to be?
