There Are Two Kinds of Smart People

There’s the “I and everyone else knows I’m smart, so I won’t bother too much” type of smart; then there’s the “Nobody thinks I’m smart, so I’m going to prove them wrong” kind of smart.

Guess who succeeds? Of course, the second one. That’s the one who works when the other one parties. That’s the one that will fight the windmills to climb the ladder of success, to achieve the impossible. That’s the lit window you see late at night. It’s the one you see running at 5 a.m.

Being smart is not enough. You gotta put in the effort.

Don’t let your own smartness fool you.
