Try It Out

Geniuses stand out not just because they have brilliant ideas, but because they do something with them. Have you ever had a good idea and done nothing about it, only to discover subsequently that someone else thought of it too and made it a success? They trusted their inner guidance and acted on it - you didnt!

Genius, as Albert Einstein said, is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Brahms concurred. 'I wish to impress on you that my compositions are not the fruits of inspiration alone,' he said, 'but also severe, painstaking toil.' Many outstanding ideas come to nothing because they are not acted upon.

Cheers, Ricky.
