The Talent Myth: 5 Essential Insights on Deliberate Practice

Life seems a lot better for the talented. They’ve got more options, have more success and in Tiger Woods’ case, they get to live in beautiful houses.

However, they have at least identified seven primary factors that predict healthy (physical and psychological) living and aging.

They are:

  1. getting an education;
  2. having a stable marriage;
  3. not smoking;
  4. employing "mature adaptations;" (see below)
  5. not abusing alcohol; 
  6. having some exercise and
  7. maintaining a healthy weight.

All of these strike me as surprisingly simple,...
