Other day I came across this very … inspirational story if nothing. If you asked me, I’d say there’s really no such thing as talent, if you say there is, then it’s highly discussable.
I believe in work, not talent, you can have affinities for certain things, but please don’t categorize them in same category as “talent”.
Once I got a question from a student “How come you know so much?”
I laughed and told him “Well, I don’t sleep much”
Without further ado I present you:
Malcolm Gladwell with “Gift or hard work”?
The University of Michigan opened its new computer centre in 1971, in a low-slung building on Beal Avenue in Ann Arbor. The university’s enormous mainframe computers stood in the middle of a vast, white-tiled room, looking, as one faculty member remembers, “like one of the last scenes in 2001: A Space Odyssey”. Off to the side were dozens of key-punch machines – what passed in those days for computer terminals. Over the years, thousands of students would pass through that white-tiled room – the most famous of whom was a gawky teenager named Bill Joy.
