Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Steve Martin's Talent CodeI spent some time reading The Talent Code at lunch today. The book's subtitle is "Greatness isn't born. It's grown. Here's how." Every page or two, I read something that makes me think about orienteering or raises a question. I making my way through the book very slowly, reading a couple of pages a day.
Over lunch, I was thinking about the parallels between the ideas in The Talent Code - ideas about practice and about how high-level performers develop - and Steve Martin's book about being a comedian. Here's a Steve Martin quote:
"...Ten of those years were spent learning, four years were spent refining, and four were spent in wild success."
I went back and took a look at some previous postings about the Steve Martin book.
