Calling someone “talented” is kind of an insult

While I’ve certainly called people “talented” over the years, and meant it as the highest kind of compliment, it might be taken differently than that.

As Seth Godin says in The Practice, “talent is not the same as skill.” He goes on to define each word:

Talent is something we’re both with: it’s in our DNA, magical alignment of gifts.
