“Hard work will always beat talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” Kevin Durant
I recently heard this powerful quote, and I couldn’t agree more when it comes to business and agency life. Natural talent, whether academic or physical, is all too often celebrated yet without the ability to work hard, it is wasted.
I believe the ability to work hard is a talent in itself.
Our natural abilities can get us initial recognition and allow for possibilities and opportunities to come our way. However, hard work is what gives us the tools to grasp those possibilities or opportunities, transforming them into realities.
