“The secret of genius is focus.
If you can laser your attention on any subject or project,
it will reveal its blueprint to you.
George Washington Carver discovered 325 uses for the peanut
and 100 for the sweet potato!
Great geniuses are powerful focusers.
Many have been called eccentric or insane
because they put aside worldly concerns
for the sake of their music, art, architecture, drama, inventing, or writing.
But they are the individuals who change the world,
while those with scattered attention wade through mediocre lives. Geniuses don’t fritter their precious minds on mass trends.
They create the trends that alter the masses.”
~ Alan Cohen from Why Your Life Sucks
