I was looking around and I saw that this guy, K Anders Ericsson, is held in high regard in sports and well, most any kind of long term training. I have a little link, and it is long and wordy, but it is interesting -
In the article, he discusses why some people do something for a long time and become experts while others only get to a certain level. it turns out, it's not always genetics!
EDIT- One more note from the article, expert performance usually requires 10,000 hours /10 years deliberate practice.

Just so you don't think everyone's ignoring you, I have been skimming through this when I've had time, and it looks pretty interesting. I'm planning on reading through the whole thing when I've got a little more free time in a week or so. I doubt we're going to get much of a discussion going since it's so damn long, but thanks for posting it.

I just thought it was very interesting. He has some other articles out there, but his books are like $ 75 to $ 125 each, and I could only find one at the UC Berkeley Library. I'm going to read a few of his articles and summarize them at some point, if I can.
