Maybe the talent isn’t skill-based

We might agree on talent: does it exist? What are the circumstances? And so on.

Regardless, no one—talented or not—makes it in a skill-based pursuit without hard work. A lot of hard work. And then more hard work. Topped off with a bit more hard work.

Discipline. Focus. Pushing through “I don’t feel like it.” Giving up other things.

Which got me to thinking…

Maybe the skill, or the ease of picking up the skill, isn’t the talent. Maybe the talent is a work ethic, and the skill happens to be something that lights a fire for the work ethic to stoke.
