The other night I was watching a brilliant documentary about the legendary pianist, Glenn Gould. His talent was so extraordinary that even when people disagreed with his artistic interpretations, they had to agree that he had something that must be respected.
Unlike some other people, I am quick to recognize genius when I see it. Therefore, rather than continuing my recent rant about talent and how the concept is seeming to destroy the arts, I will simply refer you to this incredibly articulate blog post on talent. Go read it. Read the comments, too.
Then sit back and think about why you are letting your so-called “lack of talent” keep you from doing what you long to do. And make a New Year’s resolution to learn to do something you supposedly don’t have a talent for.
