Innate Ability

Evan, what percent of your talent do you attribute to an innate ability as compared to a learned ability?

Please keep doing what you are doing (fun to watch man!)


In terms of skill, I don’t feel that I’m innately very talented. I’ve just had over 10,000 hours of practice in my lifetime. I do, however, feel like I was born with a slightly different brain. I think of myself as a bit more creative and eccentric than the average human being. I think this has allowed me to make interesting new tricks.


Awesome, so you are saying we all have a chance at being great. I really appreciate you taking the time and allowing all of us a chance to get to know the man, the myth, the legend Evan Nagao.

Best of luck to you in the future

Yes. If anyone put 10,000+ hours of practice in with the intention to get better, they would. Most people just don’t have the level of passion or patience or craziness to do this haha.
