Arthur Schopenhauer was a German philosopher. He is known for “The World as Will and Representation”, which characterizes the phenomenal world as the manifestation of a blind and irrational noumenal will.
This quote is very important from a business and entrepreneurship perspective.
Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.– Arthur Schopenhauer
Talent involves excelling in areas where others may struggle, hitting targets that are challenging but still visible.
That’s why for businesses having talented people is very important, because these talented people will be able to deliver the needed results.
On the other hand, genius is the ability to identify and pursue objectives that are not visible to the average person, showcasing a level of innovation and vision that sets geniuses apart.
Genius is easy to identify, but often not taken seriously. Genius should be in every level of leadership in a company or startup.
Talent does not create unicorns, genius does. It is genius that is able to identify the hidden targets, and create the 10x growth a company needs.
