How to Unleash Your Inner Champion: Insights from APB's David Epstein & Geoff Colvin
12 Jul 2019
Are you more likely to succeed from deliberate practice or by gaining experience in varied areas? Two APB speakers—best-selling author of Range, David Epstein, and Senior Editor-at-Large of Fortune, Geoff Colvin—each argue that one of these paths is the best way to find success.
In “8 Ways to Unleash the Inner Champion,” author Shyam Ramanathan uses Colvin’s ideas to identify eight qualities that help “unleash your inner champion.” Colvin asserts that talent is more due to deliberate practice than natural gifts. However, Epstein’s argument is that instead of specializing early on, it’s best to begin with a broad focus and many interests, which leads to more creative and agile performance.
Regardless of whether you believe in 10,000 hours of practice or 10,000 interests, David Epstein and Geoff Colvin draw from their extensive research on the world’s top performers in business, athletics and beyond to deliver insightful, groundbreaking keynotes.
