Genius hesitates. I love that! When we approach a truly enormous idea, of the sort that tilts the world on its axis, we’re not excited and arrogant and confident. We’re unsure; we hesitate. I’ve noticed this in the scientists I interview. The ones who are doing really groundbreaking work are tentative, cautious, almost unsettled by the implications of what they’re saying.
… anything and everything. Laughing about old memories and discussing the week’s happenings at work. The next morning you will remember a summary of what was said — the essence of the conversations and the most important parts; not every single world. Real life conversations happen right there and then, in the moment.
