A Star Is Made – New York Times
I seem to have a theme lately of "what to do with your life" and this quote resonated. According to research done by the authors of Freakonomics, practice is more important than talent; you are just more likely to practice what you like so you end up being good at what you like. (Or vice versa.) From A Star Is Made – New York Times.
when it comes to choosing a life path, you should do what you love — because if you don’t love it, you are unlikely to work hard enough to get very good. Most people naturally don’t like to do things they aren’t "good" at. So they often give up, telling themselves they simply don’t possess the talent for math or skiing or the violin. But what they really lack is the desire to be good and to undertake the deliberate practice that would make them better.
So the key is figuring out what you enjoy doing whether you are good at it or not yet.
