When you help your child start a journey of 10,000 hours of talent building, it can feel in the beginning like you are riding a bicycle on the backroads, when you would rather be driving on a highway with a big, fast SUV. It feels like that because the beginning is in fact humble and slow. But humble and slow in the beginning stages of building talent gives you time to discover which part of the talent thread you want your child to pursue with bigger, more expensive tools. Don’t over-invest in the big, wrong tool that can get you fast to where you want to go. Stock-pile your energy and money to make bolder investments once your confidence has grown that you are on the right talent track.
