The sad thing of it is that while we languish away trying to make a living, our potential to be as great, or contribute in a significant way much like the people on the posted lists, we will never be given a chance. (For the most part…)
How sad…imagine how much of an impact we can have on the world if we were encouraged to use our “gift” in a creative, positive way.
Every time I pass a grave yard, I ask myself: How many great ideas will never see the light of day…
There is a popular theory that the ADHD gene has survived because it provided successful hunters all the attributes (hyperawareness, rapid attention shift, etc…) to ensure the survival of the clan or tribe.
