“Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.” – Arthur Schopenhauer
We tend to find a dream through modeling – that is, we see someone working at something we think we would like, or living a life we would like to have – and that’s how we decide to make progress towards a future goal.
But it seems that there is a special group that are able to envision an entirely different way of life. Further separated are those who find ways of transforming those visions into reality.
There is nothing wrong with modeling. In fact, many business and self-help icons will tell you that modeling is an efficient means of achieving success.
The alternative in goal-setting, though, is to work towards that which has never been created. To develop something truly original.
