Secretly, we would all like to think that we have a smidgeon of genius. It doesn’t have to be much, just enough to know that we have some claim on intelligence. After all, we’ve been taught from early childhood that achieving high marks is a noble pursuit. And the competition and the stakes continue to escalate as we mature into adulthood. This week will be dedicated to the search for genius. Perhaps, we can leave the competitive ring and focus on the quest of knowledge.
“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”
