Talent vs. Genius


Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.

May our eyes see beyond the obvious and take another look at the improbable, impossible and impractical…perhaps we have overlooked genius?

  1. As military man I have commanded in my career hundred of thousands of men. Every time I reiterated to my officers that EVERY single individual out there has a special talent and if they do not ‘discover’ that talent it will be their own shortcoming. It is imperative we do that as early as possible so that we task him and get returns from his talent. Well through that process the ‘Genius’ will identify himself.


    • Well said…it seems that genius is a process of discovery and acceptance. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
