10 reasons talent is overrated

I have been meaning to share this for a while. I have been talking with my teams about their careers and direction and how talented the people but I find that word talent over used and far too simplistic and if anything an excuse to differentiate people.

I have never considered myself very talented. I learned early on that hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. Here are my 10 things you can all do and have today which will make talent less and less a factor in your futures.

  1. Being on time
  2. Work ethic
  3. Effort
  4. Body Language
  5. Energy
  6. Attitude
  7. Passion
  8. Being coachable
  9. Doing extra
  10. Being prepared
