What I learned from Winslow Homer about Talent

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your work today.

Idea 💡

"There's no such thing as talent. What they call talent is nothing but the capacity for doing continuous hard work in the right way." — Winslow Homer

Reflection 🤔

Talent is only half of the battle. You have to be good at something and show up consistently to do the work.

Consistent hard work will be lazy talent all day. If you can combine the two forces, you are unstoppable.

Action ✅

Do your talents make you think you shouldn't work as hard? Identify and remove this false belief.
