JNDS Quotables #2 – Hard WorkJune 14 / JN Design Studio
I was never a fan of the word “Talent”. Often hearing others speak as if there was no practice. Hours of failure to get a moment of success. Simply believing the idea that if you are good at something you were just “Born With It”.
I am a firm believer that no one is born with a talent or skill. We have certain passions that we take into without thought. The love for what we like allows us to catch on quicker than most and work at it without the feeling of it being work.
In order to perfect that passion, which some may call talent, you have to work at it. That natural ability will only take you so far. What gets you to greatness with that ability is hard work. Constantly practicing and failing, and repeating over and over again. Experimenting in new and alternate ways.
Which leads me to my second installment in the JNDS Quotables series, focusing on “Hard Work”. These words have resonated with me throughout the years to never settle. Always keep learning and working, or face someone else passing you by.
Download these words from Tim Notke. I hope it pushes you as it continues to push me!
