I loved this TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert about creative genius:
Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius.
It’s very inspiring and I really admire how she’s reconciled her creative expectations.
A point I think is also missing from most discussions about creative genius is context. The time and culture a work is released in have a lot more to do with being considered genius than the work itself.
If I had a time machine I would travel to the past and play some electronica on the Ed Sullivan Show.
