I have some observations about really bright, talented people 

I’ve been around some very bright, talented people during my time in the academy, and I noticed that these people are like very strong swimmers: the direction of their effort- the pure purpose- really is more important than their ability. I think a simple person doing a doggy paddle toward shore is better than an Olympic swimmer with great technique and strength going in the wrong direction- but then again that person might find Atlantis and return.
