Do I have to contribute to scientific advancement to become a genius?

The answer is quite simple:

If you want to be discovered as the creative genius you are, you need to publish more often!

The advantage of working productively is that you have a greater chance of creating something extraordinary.

When you work productively, you give yourself more opportunities to produce something truly brilliant. It is important to know that not all of your work will be equally brilliant, and that is okay.

Even geniuses have produced works that are not as good as their other works. However, these less successful works often get lost in the huge number of works that these geniuses have created. The advantage of this is that the truly exceptional works tend to stand out and be remembered.

If you work productively, you are also more likely to learn from your mistakes and improve your skills.

The more you produce,

the more experience you gain,

and the more you learn.

This allows you to constantly improve your work and refine your craft. It also helps to build a sense of momentum, which makes it easier to overcome writer’s block or other obstacles that can arise in the creative process. It also makes it more likely that you will build a following and establish yourself as an expert in your field.

By consistently producing high quality work, you can build a reputation and gain a loyal audience.

This is especially important if you want to monetise your work and turn your passion into a career.

What makes a genius is output.

Genius creates output and this makes them a genius.

The output of geniuses is

  • often seen as ingenious, new and unique.
  • the end result or product of a creative and intellectual process.
  • the creation of new knowledge or ideas by a genius.

This distinguishes them from scholars who have a lot of knowledge but do not create new ideas from it.

While scholars shine by being able to demonstrate their knowledge, geniuses create new knowledge in the form of output.

Those readers who have not read the previous volumes of this series should only know briefly that the output of geniuses is or was always something ingenious, new, unique.

Reproducing existing knowledge alone is not enough!
You need to be creating something new and original.

To be a genius, you have to be productive and publish new knowledge and new ideas.

The question now is what geniuses did, and how one can be so productive oneself.

Where does the genius get the idea to be productive and creative — two different, yet very narrow terms — most of the time in life?

What goes on in a genius who gradually, even after great success, wrote more books?

Many people think it is a natural gift to be a genius.

Yet all the processes that geniuses went through are quite understandable and learnable…

The term “productivity” implies the existence of a product, a tangible or intangible result, which is the outcome of one’s intellectual efforts. Productivity is the cornerstone that enables geniuses to transform their intellectual potential into tangible results.

A product can take many forms, such as a book, a scientific paper, an invention or even a new idea or concept.

Productivity is measured by the results that one has achieved.

For geniuses, productivity is a crucial factor.

Only through constant productivity are they able to make the breakthroughs and contributions that lead to genius.

Otherwise, their ideas may never come to fruition. It is only through their ability to efficiently and effectively translate their ideas into concrete products that they are able to make their mark on the world.

Productivity is therefore the ability to transform abstract ideas into something that can be shared with the world.

Without productivity, there would be no end product and thus no progress, growth or development in any field. Productivity can be represented by a simple formula:

Productivity = Output / Input

If, after all productivity techniques, no end product comes out, you have not been productive. This means that in order to be productive you need a goal that you want to achieve. The end result of your productive activity must therefore be a product.

The bottom line is about completion. Because no matter what activities you do, only when a work is finished can you tell if it was efficient. Just don’t concern yourself too much with how you do something, but do it.

How can you be as productive as geniuses?

By setting challenges for yourself.
