  1. Thanks for this link! SMB Capital loves the “Talent Is Overrated” book and the whole “disciplined practice” idea, and I linked the blog to their blog so they could check it out. They’ll probably love it.

    If you haven’t flipped through Talent Is Overrated, it’s a nice 2-3hour read at the bookstore over coffee, and it will help reinforce the points about skill workouts that are mentioned in your linked blog post. Talent Is Overrated also includes a very thoughtful discussion of motivation, which is really the critical element in terms of achieving excellence/disciplined practice. Cheers –

  2. I don’t think I’ve read “Talent is Overrated” but I just bought it! 🙂

    I’ve read tons of similar books and I think I’ve had this in my wishlist for a while, just been waiting for my Amazon affiliate money to show up.

    Thanks for reminding me about it!
