playing guitarToday, I thought about talent.   I never fail to be impressed with the talent that I see around me every day.   Pure talent isn’t impressive to me all by itself.  What captures my attention is what people do with their talent.  What I admire are those who have talent but are always doing whatever they can to improve.  That’s impressive.


  • The team member who is so smart and good at what they do, yet they continue to read books, blogs and other materials to constantly increase their knowledge.
  • The veteran musician who is a master at their craft, yet continue to practice, pushing themselves to always be the best they can be.
  • The athlete who dedicates their life to their sport, with the goal to reach peak performance.

All you have to do is open your eyes and look around.  Talent is all around you, in more ways then you can count.  Your hairdresser, your bus driver, your barista, your physician, your teacher, your neighbor, your children…YOU.  Are you using your talent?  Are you nurturing your talent?   Am I?
