Genius is...

You've probably heard that famous quote "genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration," right? (More about that at Quote Investigator.) Well, here is a great take by the wonderful cartoonist Grant Snider on that classic quote; you can find out more about the cartoon at his blog. Yes, the numbers are made up (but hey, let's face it, a lot of numbers you see on infographics are not very reliable) — but the key thing here is that he shows you so many different ways to understand the sources of your own genius. Maybe you could make up a list of your own, showing your own take on just what it takes to be "a genius" at something.

Genius is...
1% inspiration
29% perspiration
5% improvisation
8% aspiration
7% contemplation
15% exploration
13% daily frustration
11% imitation
10.9 desperation
0.1% pure elation
