When you were in school you either hated the smartest kid in the class or you were the smartest kid in the class. No other options.
Now that you’re older, there are three options.
- You hate that person
- You are that person
- You seek out that person
I hope you’ve moved past number one to either two or three.
PS If you are number two, what are you doing to hold onto that position? The truly smart kids are seeking the smart kids from other classes.
