I’ve just picked up a new book ‘The Talent Code’ by Daniel Coyle, which looks into whether talent is born or can it really be grown?
I’ll review it when finished. The text intrigued me as a report into how much of a gift is ‘given’ at the start of life as opposed to the individual working hard and grafting it into an art-form through persistence.
It’s certainly posing a great question and a good study. I’m a strong believer in the nurturing of skill through consistently looking at adaptions of a challenge presented to you as an individual or a group.
