Gritless Talents

Gritless Talents

We are awed by boundless skills of the gifted. We sometimes wish we have the same inborn endowment, or blame our failure for the lack thereof.

Talents cut down the number of practice hours needed to beat the untalented counterparts who practice for the same number of hours. And yet, these well-endowed people can be beaten by the untalented ones through the enormous numbers of sustainable practice hours.

A natural talent supplements your progress, grit keeps you going.
