We would like to think that a genius is someone with a high IQ or wins a Nobel Prize.
Our internal narrative is that people like I us don’t do stuff like that.
That is reserved for the likes of Albert Einstein or Marie Curie or the person who cures cancer.
But the Romans called anyone a genius when they would release their gifts. In Greece, they were called Daemons.
So if we redefined what it means to be a genius as someone who uses their talents to solve interesting problems or to make a difference; maybe people like us can do stuff like that.
