In search of your dormant Genius

August 20, 2015 at 11:56 am

“Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see”. Arthur Schopenhauer’s poetic distinction is as tensile as it is poignant. Today, over a hundred and fifty years after his death, talent is served in a platter at the mercy of a button over dinner. Genius however, has escaped the entrapment of the media moguls and the reason is probably what Schopenhauer was alluding to over a century ago: we cannot find what we are ignorant of needing.

Connecting the Dots

Traversing the thin meandering paths between our wants and needs in life may be a very demanding journey, but it is just as necessary. We cannot choose not to take it, we can only choose when we do. While our ‘wants’ make themselves obvious, it’s the hidden ‘needs’ that usually forge the paths that our lives take and although some of us are blessed with knowing what we need, the rest of us are destined to stumble our way to it. Do we really need to stumble or have we missed clues that were placed along the way?
