Talent and Hard Work

Eric Zorn, columnist for the Chicago Tribune, wrote a piece a while back called "50 Things I've Learned".

One of his top 50 is "in everyday life, most 'talent' is simply hard work in disguise". Don't you think the main point he's trying to make is regarding hard work? "Wow, she's really good!" "Amazing; did you see how much he accomplished?"

Talent can only take you so far, because you still need to get results. Most of the time, getting results means working hard.

So, when it comes down to it, I'd rather have a hard worker with average talent than a talented worker with average drive. What do you think?
