Don’t Try to be a Genius! You should focus on being a Scenius!

Is brilliance an outcome of one mind or the coming together of many minds? In a world that champions the likes of Elon Musk and Steve Jobs, it’s hard not to want to emulate the kind of success they have enjoyed. Don’t we all want to be called a mad genius? But that’s a lot of pressure to place on our own shoulders. Instead, why not embrace the collective concept of a “scenius”? What’s that you ask? Listen to this episode to hear Varun’s take on this little known concept.
