A friend sent me this link to a talk by author Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the international bestseller, Eat Pray Love. She's an engaging speaker and I love the new (or old, as it turns out) framework she gives to "genius."
From the website:
Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.
