Malcolm Gladwell on success and how to realise our potential

At the Dreamforce conference in San Francisco, Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference and the upcoming Outliers: The Story of Success, gives two examples of hard work that later looked like genius. Bill Gates got up at 2am to program as a teenager, while the Beatles played together 1200 times, far more than most bands, before they ever got famous. Success, he believes, is the result of putting your heart and mind into something to create successful, meaningful work.

He also says that it is important to understand the barriers many people face in achieving their full potential—it’s about attitude, economics, and logistics rather than talent or genes—and to look at how we can continue to lift those barriers through meaningful work.
