Quote of the Day 20080121

“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. ” — Stephen King, Author

A few days ago, I wrote another post about some quotes dealing with working hard. And here again we have Stephen King saying that what separates the successful from the talented is working hard. Is this idea related to the Protestant work ethic? I’m not suggesting that one will not have to take action to be successful, but question if it really must be hard work? Somehow, maybe only in my head, hard work implies lack of enjoyment, lack of fun. What do you think? Leave a comment.
