Why talent is overrated
Hola! Os paso un artículo publicado en CNNMoney al que he llegado a través del blog de Fabrice Grinda.
El artículo trata un tema sobre el que hemos discutido más de una vez a lo largo de estos años de universidad.
¿Se nace con talento o es algo que se consigue mediante el trabajo? Para dar respuesta a esta pregunta el autor trata el tema del trabajo o las prácticas intencionadas.
De este artículo me gustaría destacar estos tres parrafos.
"Why do certain people put themselves through the years of intensive daily work that eventually makes them world-class great? This is the deepest question about great performance, and the researchers do not offer us a complete answer. We've reached the point where we must proceed by looking in the only place we have left: within ourselves. The answers depend on your response to two basic questions: What do you really want? And what do you really believe?
What you want - really, deeply want - is fundamental because deliberate practice is an investment: The costs come now, the benefits later. The more you want something, the easier it will be for you to sustain the needed effort until the payoff starts to arrive. But if you're pursuing something that you don't truly want and are competing against others whose desire is deep, you can guess the outcome.
The second question is more profound. What do you really believe? Do you believe that you have a choice in this matter? Do you believe that if you do the work, and do it with intense focus for years on end, your performance will eventually reach the highest levels? If you believe that, then there's a chance you will do the work and achieve great performance. But if you believe that your performance is forever limited by your lack of a specific innate gift, then there's no chance at all that you will do the work. What you really believe about the source of great performance thus becomes the foundation of all you will ever achieve."
