The genius equation

I truly believe that the perception of the genius is a problem. But rather than rant, I thought I’d give my own version of it. I call it the genius equation:

Genius = Above average natural talent in specific area X sustained effort in that area.

The clue is really in the word – the etymology of the word genius includes: person of natural intelligence or talent. Of which I believe we all have one at least one.

So the real consideration is this – Not whether you’ve got one, but whether you let it slide?
