A Little Genius
Remember Andy Rooney? If you grew up watching 60 Minutes like I did, then you remember the two-minute blurbs at the end where Andy would talk about whatever slice of life most irked him that week.
Many things irked me this week. If I talk about them here, I’m going to sound like a stingy curmudgeon, so I’ll stick to the best thing that happened.
A friend shared this TED Talk with me:
Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat, Prey, Love fame discusses the idea of genius, and the possibility that internalizing the idea of genius has caused more harm than good.
Since I’m a little late at showing up for my part today, that’s all I have for you.
