Slow Learners

We often define “smart” at how good someone is at memorization, learning, and standardized tests.

But the real world requires alternative intelligence, and most importantly, meaning.

What motivates you? Is it the grades, money, the autonomy, the ease or challenge of the job?

Passion pushes intelligence to a level beyond knowing what everyone else knows. Passion spurs innovation, creativity, and deliberate deviation from the norm.

Why do what everyone else is doing when you can change the odds?

“Most men die at 25… we just don’t bury them until they are 70.” – Benjamin Franklin

Stay motivated and work on stuff that interests you. That’s intelligence.
