A Quote by George Lucas on talent, skill, and flow

Everybody has talent and it's just a matter of moving around until you've discovered what it is. A talent is a combination of something you love a great deal and something you can lose yourself in -- something that you can start at 9 o'clock, look up from your work and it's 10 o'clock at night -- and also something that you have a talent, not a talent for, but skills that you have a natural ability to do very well. And usually those two things go together.

A Quote by Steve Case on talent, skill, recruiting, people, and team

You're only as strong as your team, and people typically don't spend enough time recruiting. One of my challenges was always being like a professional recruiter, always looking at people as free agents and figuring, "Okay. They may be doing this now over there, but they seem like they have the perspective and skills that could be helpful here. How do we figure out a way of bringing them into our fold?" Constantly being on the lookout for talent is a critical variable, I think, particularly in these emerging markets.

A Quote by Ken Hendricks on entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship, business, luck, serendipity, and skill

What is the most overrated skill for an entrepreneur?

The most overrated skill is skill. Luck is more important. The entrepreneur gets credit for being this genius, when really he was just at the right place at the right time.
