Innate Talent or Consistent Effort?

"The differences between expert performers and normal adults are not immutable, that is, due to genetically prescribed talent. Instead, these differences reflect a life-long period of deliberate effort to improve performance." - K. Anders Ericsson

"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few." -Shunya Suzuki, Roshi


"Chase after money and security and your heart will never unclench. Care about people's approval and you will be their prisoner. Do your work, then step back. The only path to serenity." -Lao Tzu

"The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between work and play, labor and leisure, mind and body, education and recreation, love and religion. One hardly knows which is which. Simply pursue your vision of excellence in whatever you do, leaving others to decide whether you are working or playing. To you, you are doing both." -Zen Buddhist Text
