Genius is not genetic. Mastery comes through a process.
We have this notion that great geniuses or creative people like an Einstein or a Da Vinci or Steve Jobs – these people are born that way as if it’s a genetic thing that they have some kind of chromosome that makes them more talented. And it’s just a bunch of nonsense. This kind of mastery comes through a process. A process that’s linked to the brain, to how we learn. It’s all based very deeply in neuroscience. And I can show you in the book step by step by step how someone like an Albert Einstein spent those 10,000 hours and was able to come up with a special theory of relativity. And so that’s what mastery basically is. And it’s not intimidating.
