Things to Think About - Talent hits a target that no one else can hit

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

“Talent hits a target that no one else can hit,” wrote the 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. “Genius hits a target no one else can see.”

This quote definitely goes on my “Gee, I wish I had said that!” list.  It brings together three powerful forces: simplicity, insight and imagery to make it unforgettable.  One can’t help but think of people like Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Jeff Bezos when contemplating Schopenhauer’s words.  I find this quote to also be inspirational, in its own way, in that it begs the question, “What is it that I might be able to see that no one else can at this time?”  After all, I think we all have a bit of genius in us that is dying to express itself.

Good luck on your journey!
