I had a slight modification to the ending for the rest of us non genius types.

Closing Thoughts for the Average Man

Creativity is necessary in our day-to-day lives and careers for the 10% of people with jobs where creativity is rewarded instead of viewed as questioning management’s priorities, acting up, or being to big for one’s britches.

Getting better at what you do comes down to identifying and attacking a problem so that you can move past it. Unless of course the problem is not having enough money because your job pays crap wages and the price of everything seems to constantly increase.

Everyone is capable of thinking above first level common sense. Although almost no one does.

You can train your brain to solve problems better, think different and make better connections every day. However, just because you can do something does not mean you will, and you will almost certainly not.

You are not a Picasso, Rembrandt, or Leonardo. Get used to it.

Genius thinking patterns are within your power — Sucks to think about doesn’t it?

Then you’ll be slightly better then 49% of the people out there!
