Talent is Overrated

I would like to recommend all to have a look at Geoff Colvins web site. His book "Talent is Overrated" is worthwhile studying. You will get a good picture of his thinking on his website. Check it out on http://www.geoffcolvin.com/. The fact that talent is overrated does however not mean that talent is of no importance. A perfect "ear" will considerably assist a musician. An athletic body will be an advantage in sports, good looks will help a stage performer to acheive that little extra. BUT the main reason for success is preparation and training. Geoff gives an array of examples to prove his point.
