TITLE: The Innate Boundary AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: September 03, 2016 4:49 PM DESC: ----- BODY:
If you love a demanding task, one that requires both discipline and talent -- shooting hoops, playing drums, writing code -- you eventually discover an innate boundary: you can apprehend real virtuosity, especially as it's used to best you, but you can't quite incorporate it. You will never be more than almost-great.
