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.
