Talent is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers...(part 1) - Geoff Colvin; 2008

This quote was added by user74087
Self-regulation begins with setting goals. These are not big, life-directing goals, but instead are more immediate goals for what you're going to be doing today. In the research, the poorest performers don't set goals at all; they just slog through their work. Mediocre performers set goals that are general and are often focused on simply achieving a good outcome - win the order; close out my positions at a profit; get the new project proposal done.
