Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.

This was my screensaver for about 3 years.

It was to motivate me to practice golf to become refined, more accurate and ultimately better. It worked. I became marginally better.

While I don’t strive for it anymore, I’m content with my game and focus on other things.

We all have a talent if we’re willing to work hard to find it.

It could be something weird and wonderful.

Or it could be seen as mundane to others.

Ultimately, it’s about you.

The rest will come.
