No stroke of Genius
Exceptional work rarely comes from a stroke of genius. It is most often a result of constant thinking, experimenting, and polishing.
When Apple releases an iPhone, it has taken them several months, to years, of internal work to design it.
There’s always a version 1, 2, 3, and more. Not one genius version that shakes the world. This applies to anything, anywhere.
Even Albert Einstein, considered a great genius, took years writing the theory of relativity.
Thinking is hard work. Research takes time. Challenging your own work is uncomfortable. That’s why exceptional work is rare — people would rather not take the long, hard, uncomfortable road.
But those who choose to take that road create exceptional things.
