Talent is over-rated.
One would think that we can often shortcut the road to expertise by going and asking an expert how he does what he does - and then just 'skipping' straight to that - but the problem with this approach is that the expert usually has a very limited idea of how he or she does what they do; the reason for this is due largely to so-called 'expert amnesia'. Expert amnesia refers to the lack of conscious understanding that most experts suffer from - due to the fact that the evolution of their performance took place over 10,000 hours or so of practise and the hundreds of minute (barely noticeable) improvements they made during that time sort of 'crept in' under the radar - resulting in an invisible/difficult to define set of small behaviours/skill-sets that account for much of their expert performance. When you ask them what they are doing - they usually describe their performance by saying things like 'I have a kind of gift' - 'I was always able to do this' - 'It's like a sixth sense', etc. often they don't mention their 10,000 hours of practise! I remember learning my first armbar from mount - and then immediately being asked to perform 1000 reps. Had trouble walking the next day - but I got a hold of that armbar concept pretty quickly. Within the first month of training, I had knocked up my 10,000 armbars. Secrets out! Go for it!
