It’s good to remember sometimes that simply being pigheaded and stubborn can lead to a satisfactory solution.
I’m sure it’s great to be a mentally nimble, insightful, brilliant, genius. Perhaps it gets boring to be able to glance at a problem and instantaneously come up with the solution, although that might be like being bored being a billionaire. (I would take my chances.)
But the genius never knows the satisfaction or the joy in just being too stupid to know when to give up and finally figuring out what works.
