Having Genius

It’s a new year so I wanted to start it off with a little inspiration..  “Eat, Pray, Love” was on TV this past weekend.  It was cold outside and didn’t want to sit in front of my computer, so I watch the movie.  Good movie all in all, but it reminded me of Liz Gilbert’s talk on TED back in 2009.  It’s a wonderful piece about finding your elusive creative genius and the idea that, instead of the rare person being a genius, all of us have a genius.

Another bit of inspiration, out today in the New York Times Magazine titled “Be Wrong as Fast as You Can”, is about the value of your best idea.  It’s a very humorous and well written article by the magazine’s editor, Hugo Lindgren.  How many times have we all banged our head, thinking our ideas are “dumb” and are not going to get us anywhere.  Or remember that “million dollar idea” that will get you rich, but you never followed up on.  Read the article HERE and you will find you are not alone.
