We know it when we see it: Michael Jordan is a talented basketball player, Steve Wozniak is a talented programmer, and Joni Mitchell is a talented songwriter. Talent is often called a gift, some preternaturally bestowed ability that allows the chosen “talented one” to succeed where others have failed. The world, then, is divided between the talented and the talentless, the genius and the merely smart, the savant and the have-not.
This notion of talent is a fabrication; fabricated in part by media, in part by our own hero-worshipping narratives. The idea that talent is inborn and innate, sufficient on its own to create success – it doesn’t hold up. Michael Jordan exercised and hit the hoops for countless hours, Wozniak bent over backwards day and night to create complex code, and Joni Mitchell eats, sleeps and breathes music. Preference might be with you from the start; you might begin by having certain physical or mental aptitudes that draw you to a particular hobby, but talent – that takes hard work, dedication, blood, sweat and tears.
