I just finished listening to a fascinating interview with Matthew Syed,
author of the book Bounce.  The book explores the idea that practice is far
more important than talent at achieving in the upper levels of sport.

We don't talk about practice much in relation to contesting, but I believe
it does make a difference.  I owe much of my success to having spent hours
and hours during my teenage years working traffic nets, chasing DX, and
competing in contests with a very small station.

Very thought provoking interview.  Check it out.
