Without practicing, greatness is impossible. But it takes more than practice to be great. Seth Godin touched on this in his most recent post:
"Practice, the 10,000 hours thing, practice alone doesn't produce work that matters. No, that only comes from caring. From caring enough to leap, to bleed for the art, to go out on the ledge, where it's dangerous. When we care enough, we raise the bar, not just for ourselves, but for our customer, our audience and our partners."
Caring is another way to say "Be Passionate".
