Praise for The Little Book of Talent

&;The Little Book of Talent should be given to every graduate at commencement, every new parent in a delivery room, every executive on the first day of work. It is a guidebook&;beautiful in its simplicity and backed by hard science&;for nurturing excellence.&;&;Charles Duhigg, bestselling author of The Power of Habit

&;It&;s so juvenile to throw around hyperbolic terms such as &;life-changing,&; but there&;s no other way to describe The Little Book of Talent. I was avidly trying new things within the first half hour of reading it and haven&;t stopped since. Brilliant. And yes: life-changing.&;&;Tom Peters, co-author of In Search of Excellence

" tip # 17 Embrace Struggle; tip #24 Visualize the wires of your brain getting faster; tip #23 Visualize the wires of your brain forming new connections; tip # 40 Just before sleep, watch a mental movie; Developing talent is like taking a cross-country hike. You will encounter challenges; you will hit snags, plateaus, and steep paths; motivation will ebb and flow. To sustain progress, it is necessary to be flexible one moment and stubborn the next, to deal with immediate obstacles while staying focused on the horizon: in short, to be a resourceful traveler.
