What is a genius?

A genius is someone who puts significant thought and energy into something most people don’t even consider and generally society rewards the title when the skill or understanding leads to a revolution in a particular subject.

Someone can be:

  • An artistic genius – Jackson Pollock
  • A scientific genius – Marie Curie, Albert Einstein
  • A fighting genius – Joan of Arc
  • A marketing genius – Seth Godin
  • A movie genius – Steven Spielberg

Or any other genius that can possibly be thought up.

One thing for certain though, without doing the work, you’re not a genius, just someone with potential. Work realizes potential. Do the work.
