talent vs skill

One way to think about talent

If you’ve worked hard for it, it’s a skill.

If it’s something that other people have that you believe you can’t possibly achieve, it’s a talent.

Of course, they think the same thing about your skill, don’t they?

Being jealous of talents that are actually skills is a great way to let yourself off the hook and make yourself miserable at the same time.
