Education

Colvin obtained a degree in economics from Harvard, and received his MBA from NYU.[2]

Talent is Overrated

The thesis of Talent is Overrated is that the greatest achievers succeed through endless "deliberate practice." Colvin characterizes it as "Hitting an eight-iron 300 times with a goal of leaving the ball within 20 feet of the pin 80 percent of the time, continually observing results and making appropriate adjustments, and doing that for hours every day - that's deliberate practice.".[3]

With Karen Gibbs, Colvin was co-anchor of Wall Street Week with Fortune on PBS for three years, successor of Louis Rukeyser. He has a daily report "On Business" heard on the CBS Radio Network, where he has made more than 8,000 broadcasts.[4]

Colvin is the brother of singer/songwriter Shawn Colvin.[5]
