MADD diary

Today 1st of April Petia came by himself for our MADD workshop. Our focus today was Talents. Talent is what you are born with and skills is what you learn. Petia talked about Sonny Bill Williams and how he is always working on his talents. You need to spend 10,000 hours to master a talent.

Today I learnt that what ever talent you have you have, just make the best and play when ever you got the opportunity to. I also learnt that when you make mistakes you learn from it and get better.
