I just finished up Daniel Coyle’s new book, The Talent Code. It is an insightful book in the study of how our brains work and why certain people are more talented than others. While the book goes deep into the latest science on brain function, the main takeaway is the three items that lead to amazingly talented individuals.
The three items are…
1. Deep Practice: This is the key ingredient. It’s the 10,000 hours of experience and the over and over daily practice routine that lead to greatness.
2. Ignition: This is the motivation to get started. The spark that ignites a person on to an uncommon life of talent and creativity.
3. Master Coaching: Disciplined and committed coaches provide help, feedback, and guidance to create a World class talent.
Combine deep practice with motivation along with a good coach and watch out. Talent can certainly be created with this powerful formula. Pick up the book and you’ll be amazed how powerful these principles really are.
