(Page 2 of 2) Let’s examine some definitions:

Talent:  Talents are naturally recurring patterns of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied. (Gallup) ‘Practice’ or Investment:  Time spent practicing, developing your skills, and building your knowledge base (Gallup) 'Perfect’ or Strength:  the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance in a specific activity (Gallup)

Using the Strengths formula:
Talent X Investment = Strength

Let’s say talent is represented numerically:
1 = a person who is NOT talented
1,000 = a person who IS talented

To simplify this, let me give an analogy. So in the field of soccer where I will compare Cristiano Rinaldo and myself. Both of us have the opportunity and free time to practice soccer for 10,000 hours. 
Using the strengths formula above:

Jason Ho:
1 x 10,000 hours = 10,000 result

Cristiano Rinaldo:
1,000 x 10,000 hours = 10,000,000 result

For me to reach Rinaldo’s standard, I would have to spend an additional 9,990,000 or 9.9 million hours of practice in the field. Assuming that I practice for 10 hours a day (8am to 6pm with no lunch nor toilet breaks and no football club supporting my income) I would need 999,900 days or 2,736 years to reach his level of 'Perfect’ (success) results. 
By understanding the different results, there should be a consideration of talent involved - how we naturally think, feel and behave. This way, we can be more targeted toward achieving the level of excellence and success in a more effective and efficient manner. Where Rinaldo should continue leveraging on his talent and practice practice practice. While I find an area where I have a 1,000 units of talent and start practicing.

I’ll have a lot more success in the latter and not to mention a more fulfilling journey. 
In the end, I feel the quote should look more like this: “Practice using Strengths, makes Perfect” (Page 2 of 2)

(Page 1 of 2) Practice makes perfect.

It’s been an age long mantra for self-improvement junkies and sportsmen alike.

I took this photo from Pitch Premier Singapore - a football training school. They use this as their company solgan and personally I love it! I enjoy logos and mottos due to my StrengthsFinder strength of ‘Ideation’. But does this hold true for personal development?

I shall attempt to deconstruct. What this motto means is that if anyone puts in the element of 'practice’ in any area, be it in sports, music or even business, you can attain the level of 'Perfect’ or success. And potentially join the ranks of a Michael Jordan, Yo-Yo Ma and Trump. 
But when I consider the philosophy of StrengthsFinder and understanding that each person has different top 5 strengths, I feel the motto should be tweaked. (Page 1 of 2)
