Can we all really be the best?

The word talent gets used an awful lot. Perhaps the best modern example of the words ingraining into our everyday lives and culture is demonstrated on so called ‘talent shows’, where the judges are looking to find the next big talent. Every now and again a person walks on stage in one of these shows completely bewildering the audience with their ability. We then conclude that this person has a mystical gift only some people are lucky enough to be born with or inherit. Never has the iceberg illusion been so apparent; it’s easy to see the ice above the water and not the colossal foundation it’s built upon.

But if it's much longer than a few months you'll probably need to elucidate.

Let’s face it, if I asked you the question in the title directly, you’d answer “Yes” immediately. Similarly, if I asked you for an example of high quality education I’m sure you’d be able to give me at least one, even if it took a bit longer to think of it. But, if I then asked you why you’d chosen that example and why that education was ‘high quality’, the answer may not arrive before we’d given up on this conversation all together.
