We all know one, right?
I love this line in the piece…
The importance of talent is grossly misunderstood and grossly overrated. We tend to put a premium on it because we think it matters most when it comes to successfully pursuing a dream. We think it is sexy. We think it is vital. We think it is everything. It’s not.
I wrote a comment on this post that reiterated something that anyone who knows me has heard before… I will take willing over talented any day. Someone who is willing to serve demonstrates a subservient heart. Talent can go awry quick.
And, you can’t teach willing.
